Name of creator
Pilot Mound United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Pilot Mound since 1925. The predecessors of Pilot Mound United Church were Knox Presbyterian Church (1879-1925) and Pilot Mound Methodist Church (1886-1925). A union Sunday school was organized between the two congregations as early as 1918. Upon church union in 1925, the former Knox Presbyterian Church became home to the congregation of Pilot Mound United Church and the Methodist Church structure was sold to the local School Board. Pilot Mound United Church was originally part of the larger Pilot Mound Pastoral Charge, led by Rev. W. Reid, that encompassed Londesboro, Wood Bay, Floral and Marringhurst. These smaller churches eventually closed and most of the remaining members of the congregations joined Pilot Mound United Church. In 2010, Pilot Mound United Church was a stand-alone pastoral charge in Agassiz Presbytery. As of 2016, Pilot Mound, Crystal City, and Clearwater made up the three-point charge, Rock Lake Pastoral Charge.
A portion of the records of Pilot Mound United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records in 1992, 2018. Additional records accumulated over time in the vertical file of Pilot Mound.
