The Marquette Mennonite Brethren Church held its first service in 1925 and was officially organized in 1934 as a branch of the North End (Elmwood) Mennonite Brethren Church in Winnipeg. The first building was occupied in 1934. The congregation originated through immigration from the Soviet Union. Eventually, the church dissolved and transferred their membership to the North End (Elmwood) Mennonite Brethren Church in 1978.
