Mayton, AB. The congregation dissolved in 1918. It had been affiliated with the Mennonite Church. The language of worship was English.

The congregation began services in 1901, and formally organized in 1903. Amos S. Bauman, who arrived with his family in 1903, is considered the founding leader of the group. The congregation originated through immigration from Iowa. The first settlers arrived 11 March 1901 from northwestern Iowa. S. F. Coffman organized the congregation.

Amos Bauman was ordained as bishop by lot on 27 July 1903. John K. Lehman became the minister in 1906 after Bauman left the congregation to join the Mennonite Brethren in Christ. In 1915 the Lehman family moved to Oregon for health reasons. Subsequently the congregation faltered.

The congregation dissolved when most members moved to Tofield and joined Salem Mennonite Church.
