The First Methodist Church in Sumas?

Photograph credited to The Reach Gallery Museum, Abbotsford, B.C.
Another great find from the Reach Gallery Museum in Abbotsford, B.C. archives website.  
According to the information at the Museum this is what the written description of the photograph:
"Two small would buildings, inscription on the back reads "First Methodist Church, Sumas, BC (possibly Sumas, WA)"  Almost positively identified as being Sumas, Washington."
So there is the mystery,  Is it British Columbia or Washington?   The Methodist Church that was pictured earlier in this blog was built in 1892.  Is this the predecessor of the other church pictured? 
If it so where was it?   Was It near where the Lambert House was built? 
Help me solve this mystery.  Does anyone know of an older Methodist Church that was built before the one we all knew?  I would appreciate any feedback.
