From Re. Sarah:

Last year we had such a good time. Now it is 187 years. I would like to invite all of you from last year, and anyone who has been any part of the history of the Vernon Presbyterian Church to come and share your stories with us. Looking forward to seeing you on May 2, 2012. Blessings.

Request for History:

We are doing research for a Vernon Presbyterian Church History book. We would like to receive any family history information, stories passed down from your ancestors who settled in or near the Vernon Presbyterian Church community, names of Sunday school teachers or preachers. 

During our research, we have found some wonderful records, photographs of ministers, teachers, Sunday school classes, Vacation Bible School, Vernon School classes that held their graduations in the church, or pioneer families sho were early settlers in Fennings County and may have attended the church.

If you would like a picture of your immediate family and various other generations included, please identify persons in the photograph and send in with your information. We will have them copied and returned to you.
