Mennonite Gospel Mission (Chicago, Illinois, USA)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Chicago Mennonite Gospel Mission, 6201 Carpenter St., Chicago, Illinois, an extinct mission station, was founded in 1909 as the initial step in home mission work by the Central Conference of Mennonites. It was first located at 843 West 63d Street. The property at the Carpenter Street location was purchased in 1910 and rebuilt for mission purposes. For many years it was known as the Mennonite Home Chapel. The membership at one time was near 60, but successive population shifts removed the chief elements in the mission constituency, and the work was continued for some years with increasing difficulty. The Home Mission Committee discontinued its organized program at the close of 1947 and the property was sold soon after.
