Historic Sites of Manitoba: Snowflake Methodist Church / Snowflake United Church (Snowflake, Municipality of Pembina)

The Snowflake Methodist Church was built on this site, at Snowflake in the Municipality of Pembina, in 1906. In 1919, the Presbyterians and Methodists began to worship here together as a Union Church. In 1925, it became part of the newly formed United Church of Canada. At that time, the pastoral charge included Purves, Mowbray, McKenzie, and Point Douglas. After the other churches closed, Snowflake joined the La Riviere pastoral charge in 1959. The last service was held in Snowflake United Church on 19 June 1994. The building is no longer on the site.
