The Sinclair Church of God in Christ, Mennonite congregation northwest of Sinclair, Manitoba, Canada had its roots when farming families began to move to the area in 1946. Sunday school was held in homes for a number of years. By 1953 there were 20 Holdeman families in the community, including a minister, Herbert Barkman. The congregation formally organized that year in the home of Frank Bartel.

For several years the group met in a schoolhouse, but it erected a new church building in 1955. As the congregation grew, it built a larger church in 1961/62. An enlarged entrance was added in 1975.

The congregation established the Stony Creek School in 1978; the first teachers were Glen Wohlgemuth and Sid Barkman.

In 2019 the congregation was part of the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite. The ministers were Glen Isaac, Jim Elliott, and Darcy Isaac.
