Biographical history

Pinewood United Church existed in the Ontario community of Pinewood, in the township of Dilke, from 1925 to 1968. The original church was sold in 1959 and replaced by a former school building that same year. At Union in 1925, Pinewood formed a part of the Sleeman charge with Nelles with Rev. C.S. Matchett presiding. It then became a part of the Stratton charge in 1932, which also included Patullo, Sleeman, Gameland and Stratton. Blue was added in 1935, but left with Gameland in 1938. Nelles joined the charge in 1935, and Patullo left in 1946. After the formation of Rainy River - Stratton charge in 1950, Pinewood became a separate charge with Nelles and Sleeman. This arrangement was shortlived, as Pinewood joined the Rainy River charge in 1954, where it remained until the church building was sold to Mr. Gerhard Krahn in Trust for the Rainy River Mennonite Church in 1968.
