Stuarts Draft Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church USA) was established in 1920 and is a member of the Southern District of the Virginia Mennonite Conference.

The church had a membership of 109 in 1957 and its preachers were Jason H. Weaver, Paul Barnhart, and Roy D. Kiser.

In 2014 the church's membership was 56 and it was served by Ministers Brett Perrett and Allen H. Swarey.

On 25 July 2014 the Virginia Mennonite Conference voted to release Stuarts Draft Mennonite Church from the conference. The church had requested a release from membership as a result of recent actions within Mennonite Church USA regarding sexuality.

Later in 2014 the congregation changed its name to Stuarts Draft Christian Fellowship.
