Crest Hill Community Church (Crest Hill Mennonite Church until 2000) (Mennonite Church USA), three miles north of Wardensville, West Virginia, is under the Virginia Conference. The church is a frame building purchased from the Presbyterians in 1924. Services had been held in Wardensville and nearby places by Virginia ministers 1905-1924. The Washington County, Maryland, Mennonites took over the work. They ordained a minister and deacon from among the sons of Thomas Heishman, who had moved here in 1905, thus organizing a congregation.  A few years later the oversight was returned to the Virginia Conference. Most of the members are descendants of Thomas Heishman. The 1953 membership was 28.

In 2008 the membership was 15; the co-pastors were Carolyn June Lyndaker and Milford E. Lyndaker.
