The P.N.C.C. Archives, located at the National Church Center of the P.N.C.C., 1006 Pittston Avenue in Scranton, PA, desperately needs your help. The quantity of items needed to be catalogued before being archived in the vault is growing faster than can be done by one person. It is a job requiring data entry into an Excel file. At present, Joseph Seliga, Chair of the P.N.C.C. History and Archives Commission, travels from New Jersey to Scranton once per month to work for a week at the Archives. However, additional assistance is needed. Surely there are people in the church who want to see the history of the P.N.C.C. preserved. Please consider donating some of your time to this worthy project.  Please contact Joseph Seliga at seliga1@optonline.net if you can assist in any way.
