The Greenfield Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church USA), 13 miles (20 km) southeast of Carnegie, Oklahoma, was founded 31 January 1914, when a meetinghouse was built, the group having been served for 12 years previously by ministers from the Gotebo congregation. A. W. Froese, the first resident pastor, began his service 15 February 1915. In 1926 the membership was 67 with Froese still serving; in 1955 it was 89 with J. B. Krause as pastor. After 1969 the congregation has not had a pastor; its membership of 23 (2007) was composed of 10 family groups. The families shared responsibility for worship services. The congregation belongs to the Western District Conference.
