Lausoms-Gemeente is a Flemish congregation on the Dutch island of Ameland. It was named after Laus Hendricks of Nes, one of its first elders, who served here 1683-ca.1745. It was also called the Foppe Ones congregation. It must have originated in the early 1660s. The names of many of its preachers and elders have been handed down. In 1804 it joined with the Jan Jacobsz group, a group of Old Frisian Mennonites, but usually called Old Flemish.
