The Jansen Krimmer Mennonite Brethren Church was founded in the Kleine Gemeinde Mennonite settlement after a group of Krimmer Mennonite Brethren had come to this community from Russia in 1877. Originally this group associated with the Evangelical Mennonite Brethren founded by Isaak Peters. But in 1880 they withdrew and under the leadership of J. A. Wiebe founded the Jansen Krimmer Mennonite Brethren Church. In 1905 or 1906 a brick church was built one mile east of Jansen. The membership never exceeded 75. By 1950 only three families were left in the community, who attended the Mennonite Brethren church.
