The First Congregational Church records (1953-2010) contain annual reports, a history of the church, copies of sermons, member directories, and Congregational Clarion, a church newsletter. The First Congregational Church, which was established in Salt Lake City in 1865, is a spiritual descendant of the pilgrims or puritans who migrated to America in the seventeenth century. A distinctive and central value of congregational churches is the autonomy of the local congregation. They also have a heritage of liberal theology, social activism, and ecumenism.
The Provo Community Congregational Church records (1883-1986) consist of the records of various church-sponsored organizations, board and committee materials, Sunday bulletins, minutes, financial records, correspondence, histories, and miscellaneous papers. The Provo Community Congregational Church was one of the earliest churches organized in the state of Utah.
