The Hutterdorf Mennonite Church (General Conference Mennonite) was a member of the Northern District Conference, located near Freeman, Hutchinson County, South Dakota, It derived its name from the village in Russia from which the settlers came in 1874. Until 1880, when the first school was built, services were conducted in the homes of members by the first ministers, the brethren William Tschetter and David Waldner. The first church, built in 1901, still served the congregation 50 years later. John Hofer, Elias Wipf, and Peter J. Stahl also served as ministers. The latter was ordained in 1917 and was still serving in 1955. The congregation had an organized Christian Endeavor and an active Sunday school. The membership in 1955 was 50.
