Name of creator
Warren United Church has existed in the Manitoba community of Warren, located in the Rural Municipality of Woodlands, since 1925. Its predecessor was Warren Methodist Church. The Methodist church, built in 1913 after the Meadow Lea congregation started moving eastward, continued to be used after Union. Brant - Argyle joined the Warren - Meadow Lea charge at the time of Union in 1925. Rev. D.B. Sparling was the first United Church minister in Warren. A manse, the former home of William McCrimmon, was bought in 1926. In 1930, they joined with Grosse Isle and Rosser to form the Warren - Rosser Pastoral charge. A Memorial Hall was built in 1939. Brant - Argyle transferred to the Stonewall Pastoral charge in 1947. Some of the church's records were destroyed in 1964 when the manse burned. Additions to the church were built in 1977 and 1981. The Warren - Rosser charge began being served by two part - time ministers in 1997, who split up the charge. Under this arrangement, Meadow Lea United worships with Warren United. At the time of description, Warren United Church is part of the Warren-Rosser Pastoral Charge with Grosse Isle, Meadow Lea and Rosser as part of Selkirk Presbytery.
The records of Warren United Church came to The United Church of Canada Archives-Conference of Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario as part of several transfers from the Warren - Rosser Pastoral charge in 1987; 1991; 1993.
