The Association's stated mission was to "embrace all Protestant Sunday Schools of Morris County" and it operated with the support of these sunday schools as well as contributions from individuals. The volunteer, non-profit organization sought to support the activitites of Sunday Schools within the county, state, country, and those operating overseas.
Officers hailed from churches across the county, and the Association held regular meetings in local Presbyterian, Methodist, and other churches of various Protestant faiths. Administrative departments and committees included: Elementary and Junior divisions, Teacher Training, Temperance, Adult, Leadership Training, and a Missionary Department. The 1896 Minutes includes an "Early History of Morris County Sunday Schools" written by Recording Secretary, George W. Howell, that traces the Sunday School movement back to 1780 England, before it spread to the United States in 1811.
The records include published meeting minutes, some of which include typewritten correspondence from Association leaders to individual sunday school administrators.
The five folders are arranged in chronological order.
