Rosenort Fellowship Chapel (Rosenort, Manitoba, Canada)

Jump to: navigation, search

The Rosenort Fellowship Chapel began services and formally organized in 1968. The first building was occupied in 1968, with a subsequent building program in 1976. Melvin Dueck is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through urbanization; it was founded by the Rosenort Evangelical Mennonite Church.

It was established as a outgrowth of the Rosenort Evanglical Mennonite Church because of a desire to have a church in town.

The congregation has been affiliated with the Evangelical Mennonite Conference since 1969. The language of worship is English; the transition from German occurred in the 1960s.
