Biographical history

Makinak Methodist Church existed in the Manitoba community of Makinak, located northwest of McCreary, from 1910 to 1925. Makinak first appears as a preaching point in 1898. The first services in the Makinak district were held in private homes and in a large hall over the Alfred Douglas hardware store. This charge was served by students and also by ministers from Dauphin. In 1909, the Methodist Circuit centred on Makinak and Ochre River also included the preaching points of Hamilton School, Bay Centre, Dickson, Canadaville, Laurier and South Makinak (later called Carrick), Turtle River, East Bay, and Million. Church land was acquired from Miss Katie Gunn, and Messrs. John N. and William Campbell, who donated 2/5 acres of part SW ¼ 16-23-16. A church was officially opened in July of 1911 and the building was shared by the Methodist and Presbyterian congregations. In 1925, the Makinak Presbyterian and Methodist congregations officially joined The United Church of Canada and the church became known as Makinak United Church.
