Steel City Mennonite Church, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, was a mission congregation sponsored by the Franconia Mennonite Conference district mission board. Established in 1951, it had 40 members in 1957.
Early leaders were Harold M. Fly and Frank Z. Greaser, though for a number of years preaching services were arranged by the mission board.
In June 2011 the congregation was released by the Franconia Mennonite Conference to join the Conservative Mennonite Conference. Some of the questions leading to this decision revolved around differing interpretations of Biblical perspectives specifically related to issues of women in leadership.
