The Tiefengrund Rosenort Mennonite congregation at Laird, Saskatchewan began services in 1894, and formally organized in 1895. The first building was occupied in 1910, with a subsequent building program in 1958. Peter Regier is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through immigration from West Prussia in 1894.
On 24-25 July 2010 the congregation celebrated its centennial.
