Lansdale Mennonite Church (Unaffiliated Mennonite), in Lansdale, Pennsylvania, was established as a mission in 1935. It was under the direction of the Franconia Mennonite Conference Board of Missions and Charities until 1951, when it became a church. In 1954 it had a membership of 60, with Jacob Rittenhouse as pastor.

In the early 1970s the congregation withdrew from the conference, and continued as an unaffiliated Mennonite Church. In 2007 it had 49 members; Larry D. Bergey served as Bishop.
