Name of creator
Knowlton United Church, initially of Methodist denomination, was organized in 1855. In 1925, when the United Church was founded, amalgamating Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, the Knowlton Wesleyan Methodist Church decided to join the union. Since 1925 or 1926, the Church was part of the Knowlton Pastoral Charge. In 2009 or 2010, the Knowlton Pastoral Charge merged with the Mountain Valley Pastoral Charge to form the Knowlton-Mountain Valley Pastoral Charge. Knowlton 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 Joint Board, the Session, the Board of Stewards, and the Congregation in co-operation with committees and organizations within the Church, such as the Sunday School, the United Church Women, and the Women's Missionary Society.
Scope and content
The fonds contains source material on Church management, the congregation's affairs, and Church organizations for the Knowlton United Church from 1860 to 2007. It consists mainly of minutes, annual reports, circuit registers, correspondence, and account books. It also contains information on the Knowlton-Creek Pastoral Charge from 1981 to 2007.
