The Plum Coulee Sommerfeld Mennonite congregation began services in 1917 in Plum Coulee, Manitoba. The first building was occupied in 1918, with a subsequent building program in 1958. A full basement was added in 1967. Abraham Doerksen is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through division from the Bergthaler Mennonites.
