CL.010 From the Beginning: The History of Village Church
Led by Judy Cooper, Heritage Committee of Village Church. 11 a.m.-noon Thursday, March 24 and 31, Room 230.
In 1947 a sign was placed in the yard near 67th and Mission Road that read “A United Presbyterian Church Will Soon be Erected on This Place.” In that same year, a young Seminary student graduated from Pittsburgh Presbyterian Seminary. He married immediately after graduation and he and his wife shared their desire to go as missionaries to China. At that time China closed its borders to Christian Missionaries so their hopes were dashed, but the Board of Ministries of the United Presbyterian Church of North America wanted to send a missionary to the field of Kansas.
