The New Holland Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church USA), located in eastern Lancaster County in New Holland, Pennsylvania, was organized for a number of retired farmers and nearby farmers from the Weaverland, Groffdale, and Hershey congregations. In 1910-1922 services were held in the Methodist church, with Noah H. Mack as minister. In 1922 a large meetinghouse was built in the town. Noah Sauder was the first local minister, ordained 20 December 1923. By the mid-1950s six ordinations had been held. Mahlon Witmer as bishop, and Noah N. Sauder and James H. Martin as ministers served a congregation of 258 members in 1956.

In 2002 there were 131 members.

In June 2016, New Holland Mennonite Church chose to leave Lancaster Mennonite Conference and join the Atlantic Coast Conference of Mennonite Church USA, and formally joined the conference in October.
