The Bird Island Union Church is composed of the remnants of the Methodist Episcopal church organized about 1880, and the Bird Island Baptist church, organized about 1881. While they have not effected a permanent organization they are holding union meetings in the Methodist church, under the pastorate of the Rev. I. Richard Mewaldt, who is also pastor of the Elim Moravian church of Melville township. The Union congregation has a strong Sunday school and a live Ladies' Aid society.
