Name of creator
Lynn Lake United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Lynn Lake, located west of Barrington Lake, since 1953. The first services were held at the local school. Many of the community's structures were originally built in the mining town of Sherridon, some 270 kilometres south of Lynn Lake. When the Sherridon mine shut down, the town was trucked piece by piece and building by building, over the frozen muskeg to the new mine site in Lynn Lake, including Sherridon's United Church and manse. The manse was moved to Lynn Lake on February 6, 1953 and the church, originally built in 1930 and renovated in 1940, was moved to Lynn Lake on March 12 1953. New foundations were built for both buildings upon their arrival to Lynn Lake. Rev. T. Fenske was the first to officiate in the newly moved church. An extension was added to the church building in 1961. Lorie River was included as a preaching point from 1968 to 1969. In 1970, Lynn Lake United Church began to be served by Anglican clergy, and eventually both Anglican and United Church services were held at St. Simon's Anglican Church. The ownership of Lynn Lake United Church was transferred over to the local Kinsmen Club in 1985 and is now used as the Kinsmen Youth Centre.
The records of Lynn Lake United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from Lynn Lake United Church.
