The Argentine Evangelical Congregational Church celebrates 100 years

Dear Sir or Madam,


We are delighted to announce that this year 2022 the Argentine Evangelical Congregational Church is celebrating 100 years of fruitful and prolific activity in Argentina. And due to this, our 100th Anniversary, we have adopted the following motto: “One hundred years announcing the Good News”. Last September a special celebration took place in the province of Entre Rios, more precisely, in the congregation of the Village of San Antonio. The whole event was in remembrance of the first, and therefore, the beginning of the Evangelical Congregational Church in South America. In addition to this, a number of activities have been carried out in many Congregational Churches too, among different provinces of the country. A historical overview reference is attached to this note, to inform you about the past, present and future course of our Institution.


Yours faithfully,

Pr. Gabriel Oscar Fischer
