Our History

It was the early 1950’s. It was the days before many rural Canadian prairie homes had electric lights, hot and cold running water and gas stoves and furnaces.

It was a spirit of compassion for those living in difficult situations that kindled in the mind of Pastor, Karl Krahenbil, in Middle Lake, Saskatchewan and was shared with Lutheran congregations throughout the prairie Provinces. It became a vision to provide a place for the elderly and others in need of care where peace, love, kindness and compassion was foremost.


It began in the spring of 1956 with the purchase of 124 acres of park-like land including a half mile of shore line along beautiful Lucien Lake. They named this place Bethany Pioneer Village.
