Warman Mennonite Church (Warman, Saskatchewan, Canada)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

In 1964 the Osler Mennonite Church experienced a conflict when it hired a professional pastor, breaking the long tradition of lay ministers. There was also a dispute in the Warman Mennonite Brethren Church regarding the method of baptism. Consequently, 14 persons formed a new congregation, the Warman Mission Church. The first meeting was in the home of John P. Doell in August 1964. Rev Jake Pauls of Osler agreed to guide the group.

On 8 November 1964, about 40 people attended the first worship service in the old Pembroke Schoolhouse the congregation had moved to its present lot. In February 1965 it moved another old schoolhouse, this time from Rosthern, to add on to the existing building. The congregation finally built a new building that was dedicated in 1979. An addition that included an elevator was dedicated in May 2001.
