In 1989 the congregation merged with Berea Mennonite Church (they had shared a pastor for a number of years), and met in the Moorefield church building until 1997.
In 1997 Community Mennonite became a significant host for programs directed towards Low German Mennonites arriving from Mexico and elsewhere. By 2010 the congregation provided space and planning support for several Wellington County organizations providing support for these recent immigrants.
