    Biographical history

    Methodist work began in the Creston area with the organization of a circuit in 1903 and a congregation, Creston Methodist Church, in 1906. The Circuit included other appointments at Erickson, Canyon City (now Canyon), Lister and Porthill (Idaho). In 1925 the congregation entered the United Church, becoming Trinity United Church. The larger Creston Pastoral Charge included points at Wynndel and Canyon and has been a part of Kootenay Presbytery to the present.
