Dalmeny Bible Church (Dalmeny, Saskatchewan, Canada)
Dalmeny Bible Church (originally known as Dalmeny Evangelical Mennonite Brethren Church) was founded in 1903 by Mennonite immigrants from the United States who had begun arriving in the Dalmeny area in 1901. The first building was occupied in 1904, with a subsequent building program in 1929. Peter Schultz is considered the founding leader of the group. The church has had a strong missionary emphasis since its early days, supporting both career and short-term missionaries. The congregation has also supported other ministries, including Camp Kadesh at Christopher Lake and the establishment of a level-four care facility and independent living units for seniors called Spruce Manor and Spruce Villa.
The transition from German to English occurred in the 1940s.
