The Wohldemfürst-Alexandrodar Mennonite Church, Kuban Mennonite settlement, Russia, was established in 1885. At first the worship services were conducted in private homes. In the 1890s a church was erected in Alexandrodar. In 1905 the membership was 124 with a total population of 270. Kornelius Dirks was the first elder and was succeeded by Franz F. Enns. Jakob Hubert, David Dirks, Johann J. Wiebe, C. C. Peters, and Jakob Braun served as ministers. The church was dissolved under the Soviet regime.
