Church anniversary

church-anniversariesGospel Mission Church, Carrot River, Sask., celebrated 75 years, July 20, 2014, with two worship services, a potluck, children’s activities and a free community barbeque.

The church was founded in 1939 as Carrot River Gospel Mission under the Canadian Sunday School Mission (now One Hope Canada). It began services in 1944 and formally organized in 1957 as a member of the Saskatchewan Conference of MB Churches, when it became known as Carrot River MB Gospel Mission, with Victor Nickel as founding pastor.

Since the church’s first building was damaged in a waterline break in 2003, the church has met in Pioneer Place on Main Street. Known as Gospel Mission Church since 2010, the congregation meets needs in the community with the love of Christ. Current membership is 21, with David Grimes as pastor.
