The Manson Mennonite Church (formerly called Cedar Creek Mennonite Church), is located at 1310 8th Street, Manson, Calhoun County, Iowa. A member of Mennonite Church USA and the Central Plains Mennonite Conference (formerly Iowa-Nebraska Mennonite Conference), Manson was organized in 1898 by settlers from Woodford and Bureau counties, Illinois.

In 1903 the first meetinghouse was built, called the Cedar Creek Mennonite Church. In 1913 a larger church was erected in northwest Manson. The name Cedar Creek was never officially changed, but this congregation became known as the Manson Mennonite Church. Missionary emphasis has generally prevailed as is evidenced by the fact that up to 1950 approximately 52 members were received from non-Mennonite homes. Minnie Swartzendruber Graber, Don McCammon, Wilbur and Grace Nachtigall, and Marie Kauffman were missionaries sent out from this church. Others have been volunteers. The 1953 membership was 264. Edward Birkey and Nicholas Stoltzfus were serving in the ministry of the congregation at that time. In 2004 the membership was 127.
