Hays Mennonite Mission Church in Hays, Alberta began services about 1957. Peter Goerzen is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through colonization from Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The move of families to the Hays area was a settlement plan for people in dried-out areas. The group was a mission-sponsored congregation and was affiliated with the Conference of Mennonites in Canada. It amalgamated with Vauxhall Mennonite Church in 1962.

The language of worship was German.
