Woodland Mennonite Church (formerly Woodland Tabernacle) is a Mennonite (Mennonite Church) rural mission church 4 miles north of Orkney Springs, near Jerome, Shenandoah County, Virginia, founded in 1920 under the Vir­ginia Mennonite Conference. An inexpensive building was erected here in 1944 to care for the work that was formerly carried on at the Lindamood schoolhouse. The membership here is the outgrowth and rem­nant of the Powder Spring congregation, which was located several miles south of this place.

The membership in 1958 was 22, with James E. Gross (1900-1963) in charge. In 2014 membership was 12 with Rodney Lebron serving as minister.
