Historical Note
The Keystone League was founded as part of a broader effort of youth ministry in the United States. It was associated with the Young People’s Society of Christian Endeavor, but was a separate entity under the direction of its own church leadership. The membership was composed of youths, those under 12 years of age holding associate and junior members, while older members held voting rights and were active in official capacities. The society encourages good Christian lifestyles which included a vow to read the Bible and pray every day, temperance, charitable works, and participation in church services, worship, prayer meetings, and Sunday school. In fact, part of the membership pledge involves a promise to involve oneself in singing during worship. Ottis Albright, secretary for second half of the minute book was the younger cousin of Jacob Albright, founder of the Evangelical Association.
