The Emmaus Mennonite Church in Blumenhof, Saskatchewan began services in 1928 and was formally organized on 16 June 1928. The congregation originated through immigration from the Soviet Union. Elder Benjamin Ewert, one of several ministers that had visited Mennonites in the Blumenhof area under the auspices of the Home Mission Board of the Conference of Mennonites in Canada, ordained the church's first minister, Isaac Wiens, on 19 June 1928.

The congregation was part of the multi-congregation Emmaus Mennonite Church Group (Gemeinde). It was also affiliated with the Conference of Mennonites in Canada.
