CONGREGATIONAL CHURCHES OF THE WEST
The first Congregational Church in the far far West began in 1819 when the American Board missionaries to the "Sandwich Islands" covenanted and set sail for Hawaii. Indian missions to Idaho and Washington followed in 1836. The first American acting Governor of California, (1846-1848) was William Colton, an ordained Congregational minister and military Chaplain.
European congregations began in Williamette Falls, Oregon in 1844, and Timothy Dwight Hunt was the first regular Protestant English preacher in San Francisco. The First Congregational Church of Los Angeles is the oldest Protestant Church in the city.
