The beginnings of this local church grew out of Bible Studies in the Flett home on First Avenue in the early sixties. Out of these came an interest in organizing a Sunday School as well as an expanded Adult Class. These were held on Sunday afternoons in a temporary structure just north of the Fletts' residence, on land that was later donated by the Fletts for a permanent building.
Over time this developed into the formation of a locally based non-denominational church with an expanded program. In 1967 a small rural church in the Hiawatha district near Lanigan, Sask. was closing due to farm amalgamation and retirements and they offered their building at no cost, a well-built twenty-year-old structure. It was moved to Binscarth and placed on a new concrete full basement prepared by Rutar Construction of Russell. At the same time the building was renovated, the floor area was expanded, and the church group then began a regular schedule in February 1968.
The new building was called the Gospel Hall and the priority of the group was to communicate the "good news" freely to all. This emphasis was reflected in the scripture text on the front wall of the building, John 3:16. "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."
For many years, the church hosted a monthly ladies evening during the fall and winter months. This was a source of friendship and sharing in a Christian context to many women who attended from all the surrounding towns. Many who are now parents in the community will remember the Friday night “Solution "for kids. These activities ran from 1983 to 1996. Three age groups based on school grades met in the church, in homes, and in the school with the generous permission of the Division.
Although the community enjoyed the opportunity for employment in the potash mines, the trend to larger farms and the migration of retirees to urban centres brought about a gradual decline in population. This loss of population presented challenges for local businesses, community based facilities and activities. Some were forced to close and the local churches were no exception.
As these changes progressed a decision was made to pass on the church building, land, and assets to a new trustee group representing a new community-based group. It began with a full regular schedule in 2015, including a Sunday School and a weekly kids club which will continue to bless the community.
