The Bergthaler Mennonite congregation began services in 1908; the first building was occupied in 1912. Johann Funk is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through immigration from Russia.

Minister Peter Penner served in 2000 as a salaried congregational leader. In 1965 there were 529 members; in 1975, 590; in 1985, 637; in 1995, 561; 2000, 532; 2008, 411. The congregation has been affiliated with the Conference of Mennonites in Manitoba, the Conference of Mennonites in Canada and the General Conference Mennonite Church since 1968. The languages of worship are English and German. The language transition from German occurred in the 1960s.
