Corning Mennonite Church (Corning, California, USA)

Jump to: navigation, search

Corning Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church), now extinct, was located north of Sacramento, California, the center of a small Mennonite settlement established in 1907. E. Stanley, formerly of Nampa, Idaho, served as deacon and in 1911 was ordained minister. Services were held in an old Methodist church in Corning, the building having been purchased by Stanley. The first family moved away in 1910; others followed so that in several years no members remained there.
