Who went to a church that had a board like this on the wall in front? I did! I grew up in a small town in east central California. We lived across the street from our small church and my mother was the organist, we were in our pew every Sunday morning.

I found this Church Register Board at an Antique Mall many years ago. It had some missing wood but as soon as I saw it, I knew it was coming home with me. Too many memories of looking at a similar one every Sunday morning when I was growing up. For years I displayed family photos and vintage holiday post cards on it because I didn’t have the words and letters it needed.
Then some years ago, I was browsing Etsy and found these vintage cardboard words for a Church Register Board. I was delighted and immediately bought them. It was displayed like that for several years.
A few weeks ago I was on Etsy again and decided to do a search just in case there were more words I could buy and someone was selling these vintage cardboard numbers! Unfortunately they didn’t have all the numbers but I bought what they had. I would love to find the word Hymns so I could put up the page numbers of my favorite ones but no luck yet. The Board is on the wall in our Family Room, I really enjoy seeing it there and it takes me back to Sunday mornings in our small church.
