Taber Mennonite Church in Taber, Alberta began services in 1949, and formally organized in 1963. The first building was occupied in 1953, with a subsequent building program in 1985. David Nickel is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through outreach by Coaldale Mennonite Church among Old Colony Mennonites near Taber.

The need for an organized church community among the Old Colony of Taber became known when a young boy died and there was no local church or spiritual leadership to help with funeral arrangements. Assistance was sought from Coaldale Mennonite which began to send ministers and teachers to Taber and eventually helped to organize the church. The language of worship was English.

The congregation dissolved in September 1998 because of diminishing membership and financial difficulties.
