The Calvary Fellowship Mennonite Church in Blackville, South Carolina, USA was established in 1968. The settlement began when Old Order Amish families from Indiana and Ohio settled in the area during the 1960s. The climate and culture were difficult, so the decision was made to permit automobiles.

In 2017 the church was a member of the Beachy Amish Mennonite Fellowship and had a membership of 41. The bishop was Virgil Kanagy, and the minister was Kenneth Kanagy.
