The Bethel Historian’s function is to collect material related to the church’s main activities and events and then mount the items in chronological order in the annual album.
In the fall of 2005 and 2006 a display of the History of Bethel (via the albums) was set up for the Bethel Ministry Fair which was held in the Great Hall. In 2007 a display of material related to Bethel and the Reformation was set up in the Great Hall for the Lutheran Fair Festival on Reformation Sunday.
MATERIAL SOURCES: Photos, articles, and items furnished by church members or previously displayed on church bulletin boards. The historian has a mailbox in the office for items to be included in the archives.
