Hinkletown Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church USA), initially a member of the Lancaster Mennonite Conference, is located on the Lakes-to-Seas Highway, near Ephrata, Pennsylvania, where there had been a union church since 1851. The Mennonites had a few services in it at different times but not until the Groffdale-New Holland circuit in 1943 took charge did things really move. Under Mahlon Witmer, bishop, Warren S. Good, minister, and Harry S. Good, deacon, a thriving work started. A new church was built in 1952. The membership in 1955 was 110. In 2008 the membership was 400; the pastor was Glenn E. Sauder. The congregation withdrew from the Lancaster Mennonite Conference in 2009-10.
