Canaan Mennonite Chapel (Madison, Indiana, USA)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Canaan Mennonite Chapel began as an outreach of the Bethel Conservative Mennonite Church of Nappanee, Indiana. Four families moved to this area of south-eastern Indiana in fall 1976 to begin a mission work. Levi Mast was licensed and then ordained to lead the group. Initially the group met in homes or a nearby church while building the Canaan church building which was completed in 1977. Several years later a school house for a Christian school program was added.

Through the years attendance has ranged from 17 to 50. The congregation has been a member of the Midwest Mennonite Fellowship.

In 2014 the congregation's minister was Joni Schrock.
