Comments: Background/History of NPMC
Nutana Park Mennonite Church had its beginnings in mid 1963 when First Mennonite decided to build a church on the east side of Saskatoon. Plans were drafted and construction began in September, 1964. The final contract price for the construction was $90,214, with the kitchen and education wing to be left unfinished. The Ruth Street lot cost was $6,000.
The doors were opened and the first service was conducted on April 4, 1965. The congregation was formally organized on January 3, 1966, with 103 charter members (76 from First Mennonite and 27 from other congregations), of whom 43 are still with us. Jake Nickel and Ernest Baergen, respectively, were the first pastor and congregational chairperson. Since then, many have made this their church home, both as members and as adherents.
Nutana Park Church celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2015.
