Mensingeweer is a village in the Dutch province of Groningen, in the former Marne region. In 1607 Jan Cornelissen was called the "bishop and preacher of the Mennonites at Mensingeweer." There was, however, no congregation here. The Mennonite congregations in this region greatly decreased both in number of congregations and in membership in the 17th century. On 11 November 1816 Houwerzijl (or Vliedorp), Ulrum, den Hoorn, Rasquert, and Obergum merged. A centrally located church was built at Mensingeweer on Hoofdstraat, dedicated on 4 April 1819, and soon also a parsonage. An organ was acquired in 1899.

In the mid-20th century a new parsonage was acquired at Eenrum. At that time there was a ladies' circle. In 1957 the congregation moved into a new meetinghouse, located at J. J. Willingestraat 13 in Eernum.
