Size: 3 volumes on 1 reel of microfilm + 2 items
A Presbyterian Sunday School was organized near Fairmont, Nebraska, in May of 1871. The following February, the First Presbyterian Church of Fairmont was organized under the direction of Rev. David Fleming. A church building was constructed, and later remodeled and enlarged.
On January 1, 1923, the Presbyterian Church federated with the Congregational Church of Fairmont, forming the Federated Community Church. In 1924 ground was broken for a new brick church building which was completed in 1926. The Federated Community Church of Fairmont held a celebration on January 4, 1946, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, and the 25th anniversary of the Federated Community Church.
