The origins of the Gretna Bergthaler Mennonite Church go back over one hundred years when weekly services began to be held in 1891 in a school known as Gretna's MEI (Mennonite Education Institute). By 1901 regular Sunday school, worship services, christian endeavor meetings and choir practices became part of the weekly schedule. ON October 5, 1947 the Gretna Bergthaler Mennonite people organized into a local congregation instead of being known as a a school church. The dedication of the existing building took place on December 21, 1958.
Our mission statement is as follows, "God calls us to be followers of Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit to grow as communities of grace, joy and peace so that God's healing and hope flow through us to the world." We are a people who love the Lord and strive to be faithful to God's calling where we have been placed. We are a welcoming, inter generational group of people from diverse backgrounds and occupations. We are connected to a larger grouping of churches called Mennonite Church Manitoba and to Mennonite Church Canada.
Our Sunday school for all ages begins at 9:30 a.m. Worship service follows at 10:45 a.m. We also meet weekly with our junior youth and moms morning out programs. For further inquires call 204-327-5790.
