Biographical history

The United Church in Grand Forks was formed in 1923, two years before national church union. It was formed from the union of Knox Presbyterian Church which had been organized in 1899 and the Methodist Church on the Grand Forks Circuit which had been initiated in 1897. Presbyterian work in the Grand Forks area had already begun earlier in 1890 as part of the Kettle River or Columbia Field. In 1923 the these two congregations voted to join in a local union resulting in a Union congregation by the name of The United Church of Grand Forks. The name was later changed to St. John's United Church in 1931. The Grand Forks Pastoral Charge in Kootenay Presbytery has included other smaller points besides St. John's. Currently it also includes Perley Memorial United Church in Christina Lake, a congregation which was begun around 1963.
