Altona Mennonite Church (Altona, Manitoba, Canada)
The Altona Mennonite Church was organized in 1962, under the leadership of Frank H. Epp as a daughter congregation to the Altona Bergthaler Mennonite Church. The vision to establish this congregation grew in the context of the need for more space in the parent church, especially to accommodate the Sunday school program. The expansion also addressed issues of the using the English language and the need to address contemporary culture. There were 22 charter members. The first building was occupied in 1964, with a subsequent building program in 1996.
