Journal references:
   
1954,54 – sold for $180

Brief History:
    
The location of this property is not known, and it may not even be in Northumberland County.   The journal identifies it as “Green Valley Church on the Sunbury charge,” but there was no Sunbury charge – only a Sunbury District – at that time.  The May 17, 1951, minutes of the conference trustees refer to this as “Green Valley church on the former Jonesville charge,” but there was never a Jonesville charge – only a Jonestown charge, in Columbia County.  In other trustee minutes, Charles Berkheimer refers to it as “Green Valley on the Hughesville charge,” which might place it in Lycoming County.  At any rate, the proceeds appear to have gone to the Hughesville charge.

2011,230 – merged into St. John’s to form Faith UMC

Brief History:
     The Central Pennsylvania Conference organized a class in Sunbury in 1873, which met in school houses until it was discontinued in 1879.  In 1887 the East Pennsylvania Conference began to minister to those with an Evangelical background or interest.  In 1890, a building was erected at Fourth and Vine Streets.  In 1900, the congregation erected a new building at Chestnut and Awl Streets.  Their final structure at Chestnut and Fifth Streets was dedicated in 1929.  The church sided with the United Evangelicals during the 1894-1922 denominational split and was one of the few congregations in the conference to participate in the reunion that formed the Evangelical Church.  The congregation changed its name from First to Albright following the 1946 union to form the Evangelical United Brethren Church – and the Sunbury United Brethren congregation changed its name from First to Otterbein at the same time.

Final disposition:
      The property was sold to the city of Sunbury and their Sunbury Renovation Inc. group to be called the Albright Center and be used for non-profit offices, a community center, and a center for the performing arts.
