What Is an Occasion for a Church Anniversary?

Occasions for celebrating a church anniversary include the church's 25th, 50th, 75th and 100th anniversaries since the church's founding. Church anniversary celebrations provide an opportunity to gather current and former ministers and church members together to celebrate the church and its history.

Some ideas for celebrating a church anniversary include printing a history of the church, gathering biographical information and portraits of past and present ministers, printing a list of all former and current congregants, performing a play depicting the church's history, and planning a banquet. Creating an anniversary cookbook, printing T-shirts or auto decals, and starting a heritage room in the church are other examples of ways to commemorate a church anniversary.
