Eigenheim Mennonite Church
Source: Victor G. Wiebe, MHSS

Eigenheim Mennonite Church began services in 1892, and formally organized in 1894. The first building was occupied in 1896, with subsequent building programs in 1902 and 1954. Peter Regier is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through immigration from Russia and the United States.

Eigenheim was part of the Rosenort church group, but became independent in 1929. The Eigenheim church building erected in 1896 was the first Mennonite church in the Northwest Territories. The Eigenheim Sunday School was the first in Saskatchewan. The language of worship is English; the transition from German occurred in the 1950s.
