Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection includes a comprehensive set of church organizational and congregational records for the original Albany (Oregon) Mennonite Church, 1989-1999 at which time the congregation merged with Bethany Mennonite Church (II-1966, Albany, Oregon) to form the new Albany Mennonite Church (II-1999).

Biographical Note

The Albany Mennonite Church is a member of the Pacific Northwest Mennonite Conference (Mennonite Church USA). This congregation had its beginning in 1898 when several Mennonite families began to meet in schools to worship. Later they obtained a small rural building known as the Geisendorfer church. Here the congregation was organized by Bishop David Garber of Idaho in 1899. John P. Bontrager served this congregation almost continuously from its beginning, first as pastor and later as bishop after he moved to California. In 1999 the congregation merged with the Bethany Mennonite Church. Its membership in 2006 was approximately 140.
