Name of creator
Lena United Church, existed in the Manitoba community of Lena, located south of Killarney, in the Killarney-Turtle Mountain Municipality, from 1925 to 1968. Its predecessor was a Presbyterian congregation that held services at Lena School. Lena United Church held its first service in its own building on December 7, 1925, making it one of the first United Churches constructed after Union. The field also included Erskine United Church and was presided over by Rev. A. Little. On July 6, 1941 Lena and Erskine joined First and Hullet United Churches to form the Killarney Pastoral charge. The last service held at Lena United Church was on May 5, 1968 with Rev. J.W. Babcock officiating. The building is currently being used as a private residence.
The records of Lena United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of two transfers of records in 1984 and 2006.
