The Living Springs Mennonite Fellowship of York Springs, Pennsylvania, USA, began as a daughter church of Garbers Mennonite Fellowship and is affiliated with the congregations of Hope Mennonite Fellowship. When it became difficult to seat all the congregants in the auditorium for services at Garbers, the congregation considered numerous options to alleviate the crowding. It decided, since several families were driving a distance from the west, to establish another congregation in Adams County. After obtaining permission from a Seventh Day Adventist Church near York Springs to rent their church building for Sunday Services, the first service was held on 7 February 2016. There were 28 charter members.

James Stelfox served as bishop, Jeffrey Weaver as minister, and Roy Diem and Justin Martin as deacons for the new congregation. Justin Martin had been ordained deacon for Living Springs on 29 August 2014 and was ordained minister for Living Springs on 11 December 2015 Lloyd Garman, Jr. was ordained deacon on 7 February 2017 after which Roy Diem resumed his role of support deacon at Garbers Mennonite Fellowship.

In August 2017, the congregation purchased the former Life and Praise Tabernacle to use as a meetinghouse. It is located approximately 1.5 miles east of East Berlin, Pennsylvania.
