The Grandview Church of God in Christ, Mennonite congregation in Grandview, Manitoba, Canada dates to 1962 when five families from the Rosenort and Steinbach congregations moved to the area, settling on farms south of the Valley River. Among the families were those of a minister, Walter Goossen, and a deacon, George Penner.

For the first months, worship services were held in homes. Then for a time, the young group used the United Church building in the Tamarisk district. Construction began on its own building in 1964, with the new building dedicated on 7 March 1965. The congregation sold the old building and constructed a new facility on one level in 1987, with dedication services on 13 March 1988.

The congregation decided to build its own school in 1977; the first teacher was Gerald Loewen. The school became known as the Poplar Grove School.

In 2019 the congregation was part of the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite. The minister was Rodney Froese.
