Lacombe, AB. The congregation dissolved in 1945. It had been affiliated with the Conference of Mennonites in Canada (1942-1945).

The congregation began services about 1928, and formally organized in 1941. The congregation originated through immigration from the Soviet Union.

Abraham Epp was minister from 1941 to 1944, the only ordained person which served this congregation during its history. The group dissolved due to internal strife and decline in membership, as those farmers who only rented their land left the area for more suitable communities.
