The John's Lake Mennonite Brethren Church, a member of the Central District Mennonite Brethren Conference, formerly known as Johannesthal, located at Regan, Burleigh County, North Dakota, was organized by Ludwig Seibel. A church was built in 1916. The congregation affiliated with the McClusky Mennonite Brethren Church, and was served by its pastors. The membership of 24 was listed under McClusky only in the 1954 Central District Conference Yearbook. Lillian Schafer, missionary to Colombia, South America, and Elsie Schafer, a Christian worker, came from this church.

Ernest Schafer (1916-2005) served as pastor of the congregation for a total of 53 year.
