The Archives Committee of the New England District has the responsibility of keeping the historical documents of the district and its congregations commended to its care. It is our goal to keep these artifacts so they can be preserved as a resource for historical reference by future generations.
Congregations are encouraged to forward materials (especially anniversary services, installations, ordinations, dedications or other noteworthy events) for inclusion in the Archives to the New England District Office in Springfield, MA marked to the attention of the Archives Committee. If you are curious about what the District Archives hasz in its files for your congregation, please feel free to request a listing.
Our committee maintains an active working relationship with the Concordia Historical Institute (the archives of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod) in St. Louis.
If you have an interest in serving on the Archives Committee or would simply like to know more about the holdings of the District Archives feel free to contact us!
The current members of the Archives Committee are:
- Kevin McCarthy, Chairman (Bethany Lutheran Church, West Hartford, CT)
- Rev. Dr. Gregory Wismar (Emeritus)
