The Iglesia Menonita Ebenezer congregation in Souderton, Pennsylvania, USA was established in 1958 as part of the Hispanic ministry of Grace Mennonite Church in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. It provided a community for Puerto Ricans who worked in summer agriculture. Guillermo Chewing was the first pastor. In 2005, the church became independent from Grace Mennonite and moved to Route 113 in Souderton with a new pastor, and changed its name to Iglesia Menonita Ebenezer. In November 2009 the church moved to the Zion Mennonite Church building in Souderton, Pennsylvania, where it continued to meet in 2021.

Iglesia Ebenezer had previously been a part of the Eastern District but left when the Grace congregation withdrew from that district conference. The congregation joined the Franconia Mennonite Conference because it recognized the value of relating to other local Mennonite Churches.

In 2021 the congregation was part of the Mosaic Mennonite Conference.
