Emmaus Mennonite Church was located in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. The congregation dissolved in 1959. It had been affiliated with the Conference of Mennonites in Canada (1932-1959) and the General Conference Mennonite Church (1941-1959).

The congregation began services in 1914, and formally organized in 1928. The first building was occupied in 1937. Benjamin Ewert is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through outreach by the Conference of Mennonites in Canada among the Sommerfelder Mennonites, and by immigration from the Soviet Union.

The Emmaus Mennonite church had seven buildings, the largest of which was in Swift Current. The Swift Current church was succeeded by Zion Mennonite when it withdrew from the Emmaus group.
