Clerics | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

This brick and stone church in Carberry was constructed in 1909 by local builder James White at a cost of about $13,000. A vote in 1925 to consider unification with Carberry Methodist Church was rejected and, for the next eight years, the congregation was without the regular services of an ordained minister.
