The Elim Mennonite congregation in Niverville, Manitoba began services in 1967. The first building was occupied in 1969, with a subsequent building program in 1986. Alfred Schroeder and Isaac Krahn are considered the founding leaders of the group. The congregation originated through division from Niverville Mennonite Church. Elim was an independent congregation from its inception until 1983 when it joined the Evangelical Mennonite Mission Conference.
In 2000 the congregation had 155 members. The language of worship was English.
After a number of years of working together, Elim Mennonite and Niverville Mennonite merged to form Niverville Community Fellowship on 1 January 2009.
