Needed and Wanted: Items for the PRC Archives!

In 2025, if the Lord wills, the Protestant Reformed Churches in America will celebrate her 100th anniversary (1925-2025). The PRC Synod of 2021 appointed a special centennial steering committee to plan and prepare for this once-in-a-lifetime event. Already they have begun their exciting work, including appointing sub-committees.

As we approach that milestone, the PRC archives would love to boost her holdings in all areas. And so we bring to your attention the important need for historic documents, pictures, mementos, and media (recordings (audio and video of programs, speeches, events, etc.) – anything small or great relating to PRC history – whether denominational, congregational, or personal.

You may contact Bob Drnek (archives assistant), Sharon Kleyn (secretary at the PRC Seminary), or myself (PRC archivist) here or by email/phone. We would love to see what you may have for us! Even if you are not ready to part with your treasure, we would be pleased to add it to our collection by making a digital copy.

Earlier this week I changed out the display cabinet in the hallway at seminary leading into the PRC archives (see photo above). I have our 100th anniversary in mind already (see photo below), and plan to change it more frequently in the months and years ahead as we approach the centennial. Maybe one of your donated items may find its way into one of these displays! Keep us in mind – we will be waiting to hear from you!
