In 1986 the Spencer Mennonite Church was forced to relocate when its building was purchased by the State of Wisconsin for a highway improvement project. The congregation bought property on County Road P near Stratford, Wisconsin. The first service in the new building was held in August 1986. 

In the mid-1990s the congregation began a weekly Bible study in the Federal Correctional Institution in Oxford, Wisconsin. The church also has a small parochial elementary school that is held in the church building.

The congregation has been part of the Midwest Mennonite Fellowship since the 1980s.
