In 1874, many delegates from Union Sunday Schools throughout the state of Georgia met at their first annual Sunday School Conference of Georgia to form what began as the “Union Sunday School Convention of the State of Georgia.” Through the years the named changed several times but by the last documented conferences in this volume the name officially became the “Georgia State Sunday School Association.” The object of this multi-denomination organization was the “vitalization of pure and undefiled religion in our schools and the spread of the Master’s kingdom.” The association included one delegate from each union school, 1 for every 20 members.
This book of minutes from the Sunday School Conference of Georgia combines hand written notes, newspaper clippings, bulletins, and other publishings concerning the history and work of the Georgia State Sunday School Association. Twenty-three annual conventions are documented in the volume.
