The congregation began services in 1938, and formally organized in 1954. The first building was occupied in 1943, with subsequent building in 1961. David D. Klassen is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through colonization from southern Manitoba. The congregation was organized as an independent Bergthaler church in 1954.

The congregation closed its door on 7 November 1999 because of the decline in the population base in the rural area. The building was sole to a Mennonite Brethren congregation, and was to be moved to Vita, Manitoba.
