Name of creator
Georgeville United Church, initially of Methodist denomination, was organized in 1859; a year later a first church was erected. In 1925, when the United Church of Canada was founded, amalgamating Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, the Georgeville Methodist Church decided to join the Union. The Georgeville United Church was part of the Georgeville, Fitch Bay, Tomifobia Pastoral Charge from 1945 to 1948; of the Magog-Georgeville Pastoral Charge from 1952 to 1972; and of the Ayer's Cliff-Magog Pastoral Charge since 1972. Georgeville United Church is under the jurisdiction of the Quebec and Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada. The Church is governed by the Board of Trustees, the Official Board, the Session, and the Congregation.
Scope and content
The fonds contains source material on the management and the congregation's affairs of Georgeville United Church from 1857 to 2008. It also provides information on the Georgeville, Fitch Bay, Tomifobia Pastoral Charge and the Georgeville-Magog Pastoral Charge. It consists mainly of minutes, account books, annual reports, orders of service, circuits registers, historical sketches, bibles and hymn books, photographs, and registers of baptisms, marriages, and burials.
