PRC Archives – 17th Annual YP’s Convention (1957) & Mystery Photo #1

Last week we featured our first PRC archives items for 2017 – some photos from the 1957 PR Young People’s Convention and a mystery church. Before we go any further, let’s start with that mystery church building.

This was the building of the PRC in Orange City, IA – a bit of a challenge perhaps, as it is not a well known church for this generation. But I was hoping some Iowa folks would recognize it. I have not seen a picture of it in any of our other PRC anniversary books.

The second item was that 1957 Young People’s Convention, held in… Grand Rapids, MI, and sponsored by Fourth PRC, which later became… SE PRC.

I found the 17th (1957) convention booklet in the YP’s Convention box in the archives and scanned a few pages from it for your further information – and perhaps for your trip down memory lane. Lots of familiar names and faces here yet, though some will not be to the newer generation.
