Cedar Hill Community Church (Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, USA)

Jump to: navigation, search

The Cedal Hill Community Church began as the Cedar Hill Mission Sunday School (Mennonite Church), which opened in 1936 in a schoolhouse in West Donegal Township two miles (three km) north of the Good Church in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, under the Lancaster Mennonite Conference. Attendance in the mid-1950s was 40 with the summer Bible school attendance averaging 108.

This group became its own congregation in 1970 and moved to a new building in 1976. In 2009 the membership was 35.

In about 2005 the congregation became part of a group known as the New Testament Fellowship of Mennonite/Anabaptist Churches. By 2014 the group appeared to function primarily as a community church, using the fellowship hall of a building it formerly owned.
