The conference is Saturday, and begins at 9 a.m. at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, at the corner of 7th and Westminster Ave in Fulton, 65251. The Church of St. Mary is a magnificent Christopher Wren designed building that dates back to the 17th Century. The church was painstakingly moved from London, England to Fulton, Missouri, where it was reconstructed stone-by-stone on the Westminster College campus. Featuring a handcrafted tracker organ and an original Wren pulpit, the church now stands exactly as Wren’s design envisioned in 1677.
Registration, worship, and the business meeting (the morning events) will take place at St. Mary’s. Lunch will be served at St. Alban’s Church, 9th & Nichols. followed by the seminars and farewell.
This year’s offering is designated for SERVE, Inc. Seminars include “History through Vintage Clothing” and “The Gift of the Present.”
