A Methodist Circuit was organized on 23 Aug 1884, in Beulah, Manitoba, located southwest of Shoal Lake in the Rural Municipality of Miniota. Points in the mission included Beulah, Arrow River, Brownridges and Torrances (Blaris). A church was built around this time as well and was jointly used by the local Methodist and the Presbyterian congregations until 1903. In 1885, Eyers and Masons were added (later known as Arrowton and Rathesay) to the field. By 1888, the field consisted of Beulah, Blaris, Ethel, Arrow River, Carlingville, Chumah, Old Miniota, Hamiota, Viola Dale, and Oak River. In 1890 the circuit was reorganized and had dropped to just Beulah, Blaris, Ethel, Miniota, Arrow River and Carlingville. In 1897, Arrowton was added and Crandall joined the field in 1901. Reverend S.W.L. Stewart reorganized the circuit in 1902 so that it served Beulah, Miniota, Blaris, Crandall, Arrowton, Lavinia and Chumah. In 1907, Beulah, Blaris, Brighton, Miniota formed the Miniota Circuit. A Local Union was formed between Beulah's Methodist and Presbyterian congregations in 1923 before formally joining the United Church of Canada in 1925. The Presbyterian church, built in 1923, continued to be used for worship after formal union.
The records of Beulah Methodist Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from Miniota United Church in 2003.
