      Weber, Urias K. (1879-1971)

      Urias K. Weber (1879-1971), the son of Menno S. and Sarah (Knipe) Weber, married Magdalena Shoemaker. In 1907 he was chosen a minister by lot in the First Mennonite Church at Berlin (Kitchener), ON. The lot had earlier fallen on his father, who had refused to accept the call. Urias Weber's only formal pastoral education consisted of less than a year of study at Moody Bible Institute (1910). At First Mennonite Church he preached in the English services only.

      In 1924 a controversy arose over whether members must wear uniform "plain dress " while working in factories and offices. After Weber admitted to communion some who did not wear the prescribed garb (an action taken contrary to instructions from Ontario bishops), he was silenced until the next session of conference. Approximately half of the congregation chose to form a new, unaffiliated congregation and asked Weber to be the minister. He served as pastor of the Stirling Avenue Mennonite Church , 1924-42, and as pastor emeritus from 1942 until his death.
