“So that future generations might know” (Psalm 78:6)

As researchers look at the past, we often ask questions about what life was like for our ancestors. Beyond names and dates, what were they like? What made them happy or afraid? Why did our ancestors make the choices that they made? How are we similar or different? Sometimes we can find historical records to help answer those questions, and sometimes we cannot. We have an opportunity to record what is going on right now, and I am asking for your assistance.

I am collecting stories about how individuals and congregations are experiencing life during the COVID-19 pandemic. I would invite you to fill out an online survey to share a snippet of your life and our lives together as a Church. To participate, complete the form below

The compiled information will be archived with the Lancaster Mennonite Historical Society. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at
