Title and Physical Description
Lethbridge Mennonite Church fonds. — 2003. — .25 cm of textual records

Administrative History
Lethbridge Mennonite Church began services in 1976, and formally organized in 1978. The first building was occupied in 1978, with a subsequent building program in 1997. Art Regier is considered the founding leader of the group. Steering Committee members at the time included: Mel Epp, Doris Behhr, Henry Lepp, Anne Martens and Walter Falk. The congregation originated through outreach by Coaldale Mennonite Church. As the number of Coaldale Mennonite members from Lethbridge increased and as more Mennonites moved into Lethbridge, the need was felt for an independent congregation there. The congregation has been affiliated with Mennonite Church Alberta (formerly Conference of Mennonites in Alberta), and Mennonite Church Canada (formerly Conference of Mennonites in Canada). The language of worship is English.

Scope & Content
The fonds consists of one document, a history of the congregation.
