History

The Superb Mennonite Church began as one of the meeting places within the Ebenfeld Mennonite Church (Gemeinde) in 1928. Mennonites from Russia arrived in the Herschel area of Saskatchewan in the winter of 1924-1925. They organized the Ebenfeld church (Gemeinde) in 1925 and joined the Conference of Mennonites.

The congregation held its last service on 31 May 2020.

As one congregation or meeting place within a multi-congregation church (Gemeinde), their size remained small, with fewer than 100 members. They met in homes until 1944-1945 when they purchased the Luseland Dispatch Printing Office and converted it into a regular meeting place on the Wiebe farmyard. In 1972 the Ebenfeld Gemeinde dissolved and subsequently Superb Mennonite Church became an independent congregation in 1973.
