5131964… what does it mean?

5131964.

Does this number mean anything to you?

It’s not a phone number.

OK – what if we insert a couple of spaces. 5 13 1964. Does that help?

That’s right, it’s a date. A very significant date in the history of Ivy Chapel United Church of Christ.

At the 1964 annual meeting of what was then known as the Missouri Conference, members voted to approve a request from Ivy Chapel to become a participating congregation in the United Church of Christ!

In connection with our 50th anniversary year, we will celebrate with a special worship at Ivy Chapel, starting at 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 18, 2014.

Watch for more details on our 50th anniversary celebrations.

And… if you have a memory of Ivy Chapel you’d like to share with us, please send us an email, and we’ll use it as part of our celebration.
