Name of creator
Rorketon United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Rorketon, located northeast of Dauphin, since 1949. The building used for the United Church was originally used by the air force during the Second World War at a nearby base. It first appears in the yearbook in 1936 as a preaching point of the Magnet Pastoral charge, and was considered a Home Missions Field. Rorketon United Church joined the Lakeside Pastoral charge in 1964. At the time of description, Rorketon United Church remains part of the Lakeside Pastoral charge in Northland Presbytery.
The records of Rorketon United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of a transfer of records from the Lakeside Pastoral charge on May 24, 1988.
Scope and content
The records of Rorketon United Church held at the conference archives include a Sacramental register pertaining to Baptisms (1953 - 1962), and Marriages (1949 - 1964).
