Munson Mennonite Church (Munson, Alberta, Canada)

Jump to: navigation, search

The Munson Mennonite congregation in Alberta began services about 1927. John Siemens and Herman Warkentine are considered the founding leaders of the group. The congregation originated through immigration from the Soviet Union. Lay leader Henry Klassen served in the 1950s as a non-salaried congregational leader. The congregation dissolved about 1956. It had been affiliated with the Conference of Mennonites in Canada. The language of worship was German.

The congregation gradually declined as members moved to such places as Didsbury and Drumheller.
