Biographical history

The Coulter United Church was formed in 1925 in Coulter, Manitoba, located just over ten miles north of the Canadian/United States border in the Rural Municipality of Arthur, when the Local Union congregation, formed in 1920, officially joined the United Church of Canada. The former Methodist Church was used for worship and the pastoral field after Union consisted of Coulter, Coultervale and Lyleton. Reverend J.C. Parker officiated. In 1965, Pierson was added to the charge. In 1986 Coulter and Coultervale amalgamated and became Coulter-Coultervale. Both buildings were maintained and service alternated between the two buildings. In 1994, the Cornerstone Pastoral charge was founded. Coulter-Coultervale, Lyleton and Pierson were included in the field along with congregations in Goodlands and Waskada. The Coulter United Church closed in 1999. The building was sold and moved off site in 2000. The congregation erected a cairn on the church site.
