Administrative/Biographical History

In 1993 Bill Harder, who grew up in La Crete, Alberta, wrote and published small booklets totaling 21 pages on the history and development of the Bergthaler Mennonite Church. He briefly describes the early Bergthaler Church, how a time of renewal happened and a church split occurred.  One group kept the church and the other group kept the name and the church treasury. The group that  kept the church joined the Sommerfelder Church.  Bill describes the years of church building, difficulty in community relations, and its state in 1993.
