Biographical history

The Medora United Church in Medora, Manitoba, located northwest of Deloraine in the Rural Municipality of Brenda, opened in 1925. Reverend Andrews presided over the first services. The church was built in 1903 by the Methodists. An oil furnace was installed in 1952. According to presbytery minutes, Medora amalgamated with the Napinka United Church in 1932. The charge at the time consisted of the congregations from Medora, Napinka, Purple Hill, and Bernice with Reverend E.S. Dixon officiating. In 1940, this amalgamation was discontinued, and Medora formed a two-point charge with the Otter congregation. In 1942, Medora amalgamated with the Deloraine United Church and Otter was closed. According to the United Church Yearbook, however, Medora is listed on the charge with Napika, Purple Hill and Bernice until 1953 when Medora and Deloraine formed a three-point charge with the Otter congregation. In 1996, Medora United closed its doors. The last service was held 3 November, 1996. The members of Medora's congregation divided themselves among Melita and Deloraine.
