The Graysville Mennonite congregation in Graysville, Manitoba began services in 1927, and formally organized in 1953. The first building was occupied in 1953, with subsequent building programs in 1960 and 1988. Frank Letkeman and John H. Janzen are considered the founding leaders of the group. The congregation originated through urbanization from rural Manitoba.

The group was originally part of Schoenwieser church group. In 1953 they joined the Bergthaler, largely because of the influence of John H. Janzen, the minister from 1953-67.

The language of worship is English; the transition from German occurred in the 1960s.

The 50th anniversary of the congregation was celebrated on 11-12 October 2003.
