Dr. Paul Peucker, Archivist at the Moravian Archives in Bethlehem, PA, hosts a visit by our Interim Archivist J. Eric Elliott on November 13 and 14. Information sharing on best practices for our Archives' management will be a focus of the trip, as Paul's experiences in both Herrnhut and Bethlehem are a wonderful asset for our Church.
We are now open to the public Monday -Thursday from 9:30am-4:30pm, with an appointment required for visits between noon and 1:30pm. The Archives will close to the public on Fridays to allow staff time to process accessions from churches, church agencies, and private collections.
