Administrative history

Aberdeen Mennonite Church began services and formally organized in 1907 as a branch of the Rosenorter Mennonite Church group in Saskatchewan. A dedication service for the church's first building was held on 12 June 1910. The members were Mennonite families that had come from Mennonite settlements in Manitoba. In 1962 the Rosenorter Gemeinde was dissolved and each congregation became independent. It was also during the 1960s that the language of worship transitioned from German to English.
