Maranatha Christian Reformed Church, Woodstock – History:
Maranatha Christian Reformed Church has been loving and serving God since 1949.
In 1946 a few immigrant families from the Netherlands came to Canada when the Canadian government opened up its borders in 1946 in a bid to have families come and work in agriculture. Many immigrants came and settled in area. Most of these families started worshipping together in each other’s homes.
In 1948 Reverend C. Spoelhof was appointed to be the Woodstock home missionary. He led weekly serves and as the church grew, they moved to the Ingersoll YMCA on November 14th, 1948.
At this time they began talking about organizing and becoming a church.
On May 29th 1949 a group of 24 families formed the Christian Reformed Church in Ingersoll-Woodstock.
