Grayson Mennonite Church is located in Grayson, Kentucky, USA. The church was organized in 2005 as a joint church plant of the Faith Hills Mennonite Church and the Hope Valley Mennonite Church. Both congregations had grown, felt the need for a new congregation, but wanted the new location to be within commuting distance of Rod and Staff Publishers, since many members worked at that company.

After leadership from the existing congregations was identified, questionnaires were given to all members of both congregations to determine their availability to help with a new church. The ordained leadership of Faith Hills and Hope Valley then selected the charter members for the new Grayson congregation.

A church building south of Grayson was purchased in 2005, and the first service was held 6 November 2005. A new church building at the present location was erected in 2014.

In 2018 the church had 73 members and was a member of the Nationwide Fellowship Churches. The ministerial team included Bishop Linford Weaver, Ministers Ethan Horst and John David Martin, and Deacon Verlyn Nolt.

The Grayson Mennonite School also began in 2005, initially at the church. In 2012 several acres of land were purchased for the three-classroom school.
