Biographical history

Sprague United Church existed in the Manitoba community of Sprague from 1925-1970. It was established as a Methodist station in 1920. The church was built around 1921. In 1925, the Sprange Pastoral charge included congregations at Vassar and North School. Student minister Rev. D. Cavers was among the first to officiate in Sprange United Church. The congregation was frequently plagued with financial problems and a motion to close the church was passed May 20, 1970. The congregation amalgamated with Steinbach United.
