The Meadow Lake Mennonite Brethren Church was first organized as the Compass Mennonite Brethren Church in the 1930s with Frank Janzen as the first pastor of a congregation of 50 people. In 1957 the church moved to Rapid View. At the same time the Baptist church moved to Loon Lake, so some of the local Baptist members joined the Mennonite Brethren church. In 1961 members purchased a small Lutheran church in Meadow Lake and held their services in town. In 1965 and in 1978 they erected a larger buildings.
The congregation has been known as Northwest Community Church since 1994.
