The Bethania Mennonite Brethren congregation was organized in 1913 under the leadership of John W. Neufeld, with an initial membership of 44. Neufeld, who moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, was succeeded by A. R. D. Klassen and David Berg. The congregation originated through colonization from Manitoba and North Dakota, as well as immigration from Russia.

The leader in 1951 was George R. Klassen. In 1950 there were 41 members; in 1965, 11. The congregation dissolved in 1973.

The congregation was part of the Herbert (South Saskatchewan) district conference. After dissolution the remaining members joined a nearby Evangelical Mennonite Brethren church.
