Wesley United Methodist Church of Grand Forks will celebrate its 140th anniversary on Sunday, August 10, 2014. Located at 1600 4th Ave. North, it will celebrate with a worship service at 10:00 a.m. and a potluck dinner and brief program to follow. All are welcome.
The first organized church in Grand Forks was Methodist. Its first organizational efforts were begun when Mrs. Alexander Griggs and "some good ladies" of the community started a Sunday School in 1872. Two years later, Mr. Griggs gave four lots of land on which a church and parsonage were built. The church was dedicated in 1877. For a brief time, the church also served Catholic and Presbyterian congregations. Methodism was officially organized in 1886 in what would become the state of North Dakota. As a consequence, Grand Forks can be considered the home of Methodism in the state.
