The Sommerfeld Mennonite congregation at Sommerfeld, MB began in 1893. The original building is still used; it was remodeled in 1964, with a basement added in 1956. Abraham Doerksen is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through division from the Bergthaler Mennonites.

Sunday school started in 1956. An organ was installed in 1987.

In 1993 there were 60 members. The congregation has been affiliated with the Sommerfeld Mennonite Church of Manitoba. The language of worship is English; the transition from German took place in the 1980s. Bishop Peter Heppner served in 2000 as a non-salaried congregational leader.
