Eyebrow Mennonite Church (Eyebrow, Saskatchewan, Canada) (1928-)
Mennonites settled in the Eyebrow area halfway between Regina and Swift Current and slightly north in the 1920s. In 1928 a congregation was founded. In 1934 a large part of the congregation moved to the Yorkton area. Before they left the membership was 85. The group that remained had a membership of 33 in 1935. By 1954 the membership stood at 64. In 1954 the congregation divided into two congregations with one having 27 and the other 25 members. The original congregation took the name First Mennonite Eyebrow and the other the Eyebrow Mennonite Church. Both struggled until 1969 when the group that left dissolved. The original congregation retained the First Mennonite Eyebrow name until 1982 when it changed back to the Eyebrow Mennonite Church name.
The first building was occupied in 1955, with a subsequent building program in 1980. David Bueckert and Bernhard Rempel are considered the founding leaders of the group. The last German services were held in 1969.
Lay leader Dave Bueckert served in 1995 as a congregational leader.
