Aberdeen Mennonite Brethren Church

  • Corporate body

The Aberdeen Mennonite Brethren Church, located in northern Saskatchewan, was a member of the Canadian Conference of the Mennonite Brethren Churches, Rosthern District. The first settlers, consisting of seven families, came to the Aberdeen area in May of 1903. They gave their membership certificates from Russia to Jacob Wiens of Ebenfeld (Laird). At first, the Aberdeen settlers gathered in the home of G.J. Sawatzky, a deacon from Russia, for regular church services. In 1904, when more settlers came from Russia, local services were organized, Sunday School was begun, and a choir was formed under the leadership of A.G. Sawatzky. From 1904-1909, services were held in the Neu Steinbach School. In 1905, Jacob Wiens (Ebenfeld) served six candidates with baptism. Gerhard Siemens from Russia visited Aberdeen in 1906 and under his direction G.J. Sawatzky began the leadership of the church. Minutes and financial records were kept, starting in 1906. The congregation erected a church building in 1909 which was paid for by the following year. Pastors in the church were: G.J. Sawatzky (1906-1909), John P. Siemens (1909-1921), H.G. Sawatzky (1921-1931), Ben L. Sawatzky (1932-1941), Johann Kruger (1942), H.W. Niessen (1943-1944), G.K. Sawatzky (1945-1952), and Archie Kruger (1953-1960). In the 1930s, membership in Aberdeen M.B. Church was over one-hundred, but by 1960, only eighteen members were left. The church closed and the remaining members joined the Saskatoon Mennonite Brethren churches.

Aberdeen Mennonite Church

  • Corporate body

Aberdeen was one of the congregations with a meeting house of the Rosenorter Gemeinde in Saskatchewan. The founder of this Gemeinde was Peter Regier (1851-1925). He had been appointed Ältester in 1887 in Prussia. He emigrated to Tiefengrund, Saskatchewan in 1893. Enough families had settled in the area so that in 1894 the Rosenorter Gemeinde of Saskatchewan had been founded. In 1909 there were enough families in the wider area to form districts with a minister in charge of each. One of these was Aberdeen which had families worshipping together since 1907 under the leadership of Cornelius Ens. There were 130 members worshipping in this district. In 1910 the meeting house at Aberdeen was completed. During the next decade or so the congregation was served by various non-resident ministers of the Gemeinde. Jacob Nickel emigrated to Aberdeen in 1924 and remained their leader until 1937. During this time he also taught in the Bible School in Rosthern. The meeting house was moved onto a basement at the same site in 1939. The building was renovated in 1950 and again in 1964. In 1962 the Rosenorter Gemeinde was dissolved and each congregation became independent. The membership was 103 in 1963. That figure remained fairly constant; in 2000 it was 102. Leaders of the congregation were: Cornelius Ens (1907-1915), Jacob Nickel (1924-1937), Peter Koop (1932-1946), Heinrich Neudorf (1932-1947), Bernhard Fast (1947-1955), Franz Koop (1951-1973), John Peters (1973-1976, 1983), John Kroeger (1977-1982), Verner Friesen (1984-1991), Rod Suderman (1992-1999), David Neufeld (2000- ).

Adam Fiddler United Church

  • Corporate body

Adam Fiddler United Church has existed in the North-western Ontario community of Sandy Lake since 1942, though missionaries first entered the community in 1900. Rev. F.G. Stevens, a Methodist minister from Oxford House, travelled to meet the people of Sandy Lake at their request, from 1897-1899, and was finally successful in meeting with them in 1900. Due to complications in reaching the community, contact with missionaries was infrequent. A local man, Adam Fiddler, stepped into the role of lay minister, eventually becoming licensed by the church for administering the Sacraments. Fiddler also built a church under his own auspices, though supplies were sent by Rev. Stevens in 1941. The church was finished in 1942. In 1956 a summer school was started in the community, and two years later Jim Synkar, the teacher, became the community's first year-round minister. A new church was built in 1960, as was a manse. Originally part of the Norway House Presbytery, Adam Fiddler United Church was transferred to the Kenora-Rainy River Presbytery in 1957; Kenora-Rainy River became Cambrian Presbytery in 1973. Upon the creation of the Keewatin Presbytery in 1981, Adam Fiddler United Church was transferred there, where it remains to today.
