Hope Mennonite Fellowship was established in Lowville, New York, USA in 1979.

Gilbert Steria (1939-2014), a dairy farmer in the Croghan, New York area was the longtime pastor of the congregation. He had originally been ordained in the Croghan Conservative Mennonite Church, part of the Conservative Mennonite Conference, in 1969.

In 2017 the congregation relocated to a former Baptist church in Denmark, New York, a town 10 miles north of Lowville. It then changed its name to Denmark Mennonite Fellowship.

In 2018 the church had 23 members and was a member of the Nationwide Fellowship Churches. The ministerial team included Ministers Nathan Gerber and Jonathan Zehr and Deacon Kenneth Gerber.
