Powder Spring Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church), now ex­tinct, located 12 miles west of Mount Jackson, Shen­andoah County, Virginia, was probably the first rural out­post under the Virginia Mennonite Conference. The meeting­house was originally built in 1858 for school and church services by three denominations, the Lu­therans having one-half interest, and the Brethren and Mennonites each one-fourth interest. Here the Mennonites held services once a month and some­times twice a month until the Woodland Tabernacle was built in 1944. A more permanent church was built in 1954. James Gross was ordained pastor in 1957. The work here was never flourishing, since it was in the midst of a strong German Lutheran community.
