The Horse Lake Mennonite Church had a close association with the nearby Garthland Mennonite congregation. For example Jacob Pauls was ordained in 1949 to serve at Garthland Mennonite Church, but also served as needed at Horse Lake particularly after Garthland closed in 1954 and before he moved to Saskatoon in 1960.
In 1958 the Tiefengrund Church planned to build a new building and made available its old building to the Horse Lake congregation. This building was moved to its current site at: 52.92944°N 106.3418°W on Wiens road, which is Saskatchewan highway 783. This location was about .75 kilometre north of the original site. The original Horse Lake church building was moved and became a private residence.
In 2010 the congregation entered into a sharing arrangement with the nearby Eigenheim Mennonite Church in which one Sunday per month members worshiped with Eigenheim and one Sunday per month Eigenheim leaders brought a worship service to the Horse Lake Mennonite Church.
The original cemetery was still actively utilized in 2011.
