York Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church), located on North Hartman Street, is a member of the Lancaster Mennonite Conference. In the 18th century a Mennonite church and cemetery was located on Market Street near Pine Street in York. This meetinghouse, built in or before 1803, was sold in 1917. When it ceased to be used is not known. In 1903 the Fourth United Brethren Church on North Hartman Street was purchased as an outpost for the Stony Brook (then Witmer) congregation. On 28 July 1935, H. Frank Leaman was ordained as pastor-superintendent. On 11 May 1954, he and some of the membership withdrew, and Roy M. Geigley became pastor-superintendent. Lloyd R. Horst was ordained pastor 26 December 1956. The membership in 1957 was 26.
