Missouri Baptist Historical Commissionscheduled to launch new Website Aug. 2
July 26, 2005
JEFFERSON CITY – Sometimes mixing the old traditions with the new technology can be a good thing. That’s the idea of the Missouri Baptist Historical Commission as they hope to help churches learn from and preserve their past with the help of the commission’s website, www.BaptistParchments.org, scheduled to be launched Aug. 2.
“We’re excited about this and hope people will use it,” David Daughenbaugh, chairman of the commission said. “It gives everyone greater access to our resources.”
The website not only gives historical background of the oldest denomination in the state, but it helps churches preserve their history by offering tips on planning milestone celebrations, a form to request a historical commemorative certificate and the option to request a speaker.
BaptistParchments.org also offers a list of the 25 oldest Baptist churches in Missouri as well as a continually updated list of churches celebrating significant anniversaries this year.
