Calvary Church (formerly Calvary Mennonite Church until 1967) in Souderton, Pennsylvania is an unaffiliated congregation. It was organized in 1950 by dissidents who had withdrawn from several congregations of the Franconia Mennonite Conference because of dissatisfaction with some of the aspects of the conference discipline. William Anders, a minister of the Towamencin congregation, became their leader. In 1952 a new meetinghouse was built. At that time the membership was 160.
