Mennonite families emigrating from Nebraska and Kansas settled in the Langham, Saskatchewan area in the early years of the first decade of the 20th century. They organized a congregation in 1903 after having worshiped together for three years. They built their own meeting house in 1907. They joined the Conference of Mennonites of Middle Canada in 1911. The congregation's membership grew slowly. In 1931 the membership stood at 82. In 1938 it was 147. Then the membership declined to 95 in 1943 and 48 in 1948 when the congregation was dissolved. The leaders of the congregation were: Heinrich Balzer ( -1935), Johann Peters ( -1940) [ both of these were there already at least in 1928], Jacob Peters (1933-1948), Johann Balzer (1933-1948).
