The Hoffnungsfelder Rabbit Lake congregation began services in 1926, and formally organized in 1928. The first building was occupied in 1929. P. H. Plenert is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through immigration from the Soviet Union.

The group was known as Rabbit Lake Mennonite Church until 1935 when the name was changed to Hoffnungsfelder Mennonite. The Hoffnungsfelder church group had five settlement centers: Mayfair, Mullingar, Rabbit Lake, Bournemouth, and Glenbush, of which Rabbit Lake was originally the primary location.

By 2004, attendance had declined to the point where the congregation began to worship regularly with the Glenbush congregation. Christmas and Easter services along with funerals were still held in the Rabbit Lake church.

The language of worship is English; the transition from German occurred in the 1960s.
