A Methodist Episcopal Society was in existence when the town of Roca, Lancaster County, Nebraska, was incorporated in 1876. The Roca Methodist Church was originally a member of the Bennett Charge (Circuit) of the Lincoln District, Nebraska Conference of Methodist Churches. In 1877 the Bennett Charge was transferred to Roca. The Methodist Church Building in Hickman was purchased in 1928 and moved to Roca, where the two buildings were combined to form the present structure.


This collection consists of one reel of microfilm containing seven volumes of church records of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Roca, Nebraska, dating from 1875-1935. The records relate to the history and activities of the Roca church, and to the Roca Charge of the Lincoln District, Nebraska Conference of Methodist Churches. Included are minutes of the Quarterly Conferences of the Bennett and Roca Charges, lists of memberships, pastors, marriages, baptisms, and deaths, account ledgers, and Sunday school records. One volume of Sunday school records is from the Hickman Methodist Church, a member of the Roca Charge.

These records were loaned for microfilming on October 21, 1968.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
