Retention of Resource Material

Description of Records

Resource material received from the synodical or the Churchwide office for the support of the activity of the congregation are as follows:

Worship materials
Programmatic materials

Care of Records

For congregations, such materials seldom have permanent value and the files should be culled annually. These materials are collected in the Churchwide and synod or region archives.

Final Disposition

Samples of hymnals and parish education materials may be important for recording the history of the congregation. Discard other resource materials when they have been superseded by newer materials.
