6th settled pastor called to serve the First Congregational Church of Buckland, commonly known as the Mary Lyon Church. Served 1873 to 1881. At the time of his calling in 1873, there had been a year in which the Methodists and Congregationalists worshipped together as the congregational pastor, Rev. Charles Lord, had died of pneumonia while on a visit to New York City. "Then it was thought best to secure a pastor, though there were only seventy resident members, and the right man was found in Rev. Charles L Guild, educated at Amherst College and Bangor Seminary and formerly a missionary in Kansas, and more recently a pastor in Maine. He seemed perfectly adapted by preparation and experience to the work to be carried on here. Some hearts were never touched as under his ministry, and the large congregations which greeted his beginning remained steadfast with gradually awakening interest until the revival of 1876. Faithful work had for some time been going on in the Sunday school. A "Horse-Shed" class was formed of those who had not been in the habit of attending Sunday school regularly. Soon it became two classes and interest in the lessons was surely growing. Fellowship meetings had been begun in this conference in 1870. At one of these, then called a "Relay" meeting, held in Ashfield in the fall of 1876, one from Buckland seeking pardon and salvation rose for prayers. Immediately Brother Guild was at his side and brought him safely to the Saviour. Quickly following that meeting others were held in Buckland. The seed sewn in tears had sprung up and grown, men knew not how; and now, being ripe for the harvest, it was reaped with joy…Brother Guild went to Charlemont in 1881. [History of Buckland by Fannie Shaw Kendrick, pub. 1937, pg 124-125]
