Name of creator
St. Paul's United Church, initially of Methodist denomination, was organized in Magog in 1884. In 1886, the Magog Methodist congregation decided to build its own church. When the United Church of Canada was founded in 1925, amalgamating Methodist, Presbyterian and Congregational Churches, the Magog congregation joined the Union. In 1929, the Church building was sold (now Le Vieux Clocher de Magog theatre) and a new one was erected the following year. St. Paul's United Church in Magog is still active. St. Paul's United Church is under the jurisdiction of the Quebec and Sherbrooke Presbytery of the Montreal and Ottawa Conference of the United Church of Canada. The Church is governed by the Congregation and the Church courts (The Board of Trustees, the Official Board, the Session, and the Board of Stewards) in co-operation with committees and organizations within the Church, such as the Sunday School and the United Church Women.
