The North Star Church of God in Christ, Mennonite congregation in Hyas, Saskatchewan, Canada was established in 1979 with John Penner as the first leader. The congregation started when five families moved from Manitoba to the Norquay area. Five more families arrived in 1980. David Penner from Ste. Anne, Manitoba arrived in June 1980 to serve as the first local minister.

A vacant home on John Penner's property served as the first meeting place. Soon property was purchased north of Hyas, and a church building erected in time for the 1980 school Christmas program.

The North Star School met in the church basement until 1990 when a recently vacated four-room school became available.

On 31 October 2004 the congregation dedicated a new church building.

In 2020 the congregation was part of the Church of God in Christ, Mennonite. The ministers were Grant Penner, David Penner, Kelly Penner, and Larry Bartel.
