RG3701.AM:  Lincoln Interfaith Council (Lincoln, Nebraska)

Records: 1942-2003
Lincoln, Lancaster County, Nebraska:  Interdenominational Church Organization
Size:  22.5 cu.ft.

BACKGROUND NOTE

The formation of the Lincoln, Nebraska Council of Churches was begun in December, 1949 when a committee was organized to study the possibility of a local level interdenominational church council.  With a report released in February, 1950 that such a formation seemed advisable, an organizational committee was chosen.  The founding of the Lincoln Council of Churches was actually spear-headed by three interdenominational groups:  the Lincoln Ministerial Association, the Council of Church Women, and the Council of Christian Education.  These groups all came to function within the Lincoln Council of Churches when it was officially organized.

After more than two years of planning, the Lincoln Council of Churches was officially formed on February 18, 1952.  With the intention of promoting "welfare, fellowship, and cooperation of churches in and around Lincoln" and "to foster the Kingdom of God through religious movements and community betterment", the Lincoln Council of Churches set up programs promoting Christian fellowship, Christian education, and social betterment.  Maintaining the same goals and types of programs, the Lincoln Council of Churches became the Lincoln Fellowship of Churches in the early 1970's.  The Fellowship continued to coordinate interdenominational church activities.

The Lincoln Fellowship of Churches broadened to represent all faiths in 1989.  At this time, the organization changed its name to the Lincoln Interfaith Council.  The Council worked to bring about greater understanding among people of different faiths, helped immigrants, administered the Food Pantry system and was involved in other cooperative projects.  The Lincoln Interfaith Council disbanded in 2006.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

The first part of this collection consists of seven boxes of manuscript material arranged into five subgroups:  SG (1) Lincoln Fellowship of Churches Organizational History, 1948-1971; SG (2) Lincoln Fellowship of Churches Government, 1952-1971; SG (3) Lincoln Fellowship of Churches Divisions; SG (4) Lincoln Fellowship of Churches Departments; and SG (5) Miscellany.  These Subgroups, all dealing with various aspects of the history, organizations and programs of the Lincoln Fellowship of Churches, are broken down into series within each Subgroup.  The second part of the collection consists of nineteen boxes of records added in 2006.  This part of the collection is not processed but an inventory is available.

The papers contained in the first part of the collection actually are those of the Fellowship's predecessors.  Most of the material deals with the organization when it was known as the Lincoln Council of Churches, from 1952 until the early 1970's.  However, parts of the collection predate this, providing information on religious organizations in Lincoln in the 1940's and early 1950's.  The collection was entitled the Lincoln Interfaith Council in order to file all information under the current name of the organization.

Part 1 subgroup listing:

Subgroup 1 consists entirely of material documenting the Organizational History of the Lincoln Fellowship of Churches.  Newspaper Clippings, Constitutions, Articles of Incorporation, Activity Reports, and Membership Listings are included in this subgroup.
