Arrangement of the Collection

Collection is arranged chronologically by date. Transcriptions are behind originals.

Scope and Content

Collection composed of financial records, pastor's sermon notes, forms for district conferences, reports to the bishop, and minutes and journal entries from the Ladies' Aid Society and the Martha Club, two women's groups important in the support of the church. Newspaper articles concerning the history of the church also mention the EpworthLeague as being an important force in the church during the early period, however these records do not include any from the Epworth League. One book contains names of around 200 Douglas County residents who attended the Parker Community Church's 35th Anniversary. Many church members and prominent Douglas County families are listed.
