Whitewater Mennonite Church's Identity Statement: 

"With our feet planted in our Anabaptist and Mennonite beginnings, we work to reach out with our hands to welcome and lift up all who come here. We encourage one another with the heart of Christ to learn and to grow in spiritual maturity, and to take amazing risks for God."

1927. Whitewater Mennonite Church was established by immigrants fleeing persecution in Russia and Western Europe, searching for a place where they could worship without fear. They moved to Canada, many starting farms in the rural area. They originally settled around the village of Whitewater and formed Whitewater Mennonite Church, which is now located in the town of Boissevain.

Our current building was completed in June of 1960. In 2020, we celebrated the 60th anniversary of the current location.

As the Congregation grew larger, urbanization was also moving the business flow towards the town of Boissevain. Building in Boissevain allowed for a more central location and a larger space for the growing church.

Known as 'The Country Church", our previous building was located 2 miles east of the village of Whitewater. It was built in 1039 and used until the completion of our current building. Previous to 1939, the Congregation used a stone church that was built in 1925 and located in the village of Whitewater.
