The Warman Mennonite Brethren (MB) Church in Warman, Saskatchewan had its beginnings in 1932 when Isaac P. Friesen of Rosthern conducted a two-week evangelistic crusade in the Warman town hall. Thereafter, ministers form the Bethesda Mennonite Church (General Conference) in Langham conducted Sunday services. After 1939 the Mennonite Brethren churches from Saskatoon and Dalmeny took charge. The first church building was erected in 1940. In 1967 the Warman MB Church was accepted into the Saskatchewan Conference of Mennonite Brethren Churches with 44 members. The church became self-supporting in 1969.
The congregation held their concluding service on 19 December 2004 and a celebratory service on 6 February 2005. The reasons for the closure were many, including dwindling attendance.
