Salem Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church), located near Tofield, Alberta, dates to 1910, when several families, including Bishop N. E. Roth, moved into the area from Nebraska. The congregation was organized under the Western Amish Mennonite Conference; with the arrival of more settlers, including most of the Mayton (Alberta) Mennonite congregation, it affiliated with the Alberta-Saskatchewan Mennonite Conference. The meetinghouse was built in 1911, enlarged in 1915 and 1926, and replaced by a new one, 52 x 80 ft., in 1954. A mission outreach at Round Hill was maintained for a time.
Minister Richard Payne served 2000-2007 as a congregational leader; in 2008 Mark Loewen became the pastor.
