The Cross Hill Mennonite Church in Cross Hill, South Carolina, USA was established in 1994. The congregation started as a daughter congregation of the Cold Spring Mennonite Church.

Cross Hill started because of overcrowding at Cold Spring. Services at Cross Hill were held in a garage until 1994 when a church building was constructed. During that time, nine Cold Spring families took turns commuting to the outreach until enough members had moved permanently into the area. About half of the families came from other churches as well.

In 2017 the church was a member of the Beachy Amish Mennonite Fellowship and had a membership of 40. The minister was Titus Wagler.
