Cedar Hill Community Church (Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, USA)

Jump to navigation Jump to 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.
