Elkhart Mennonite Church (General Conference Mennonite Chruch) began holding services in January 1958 and was organized as a congregation with 40 charter members on 31 August 1958. In April 1959 Walter Gering began to serve as pastor. Since its inception the congregation has met in the West Side School but in July 1959 a 4-acre plot with parsonage located at the corner of Hively and Pleasant Plain was purchased on which a meetinghouse was built.
