North Vine Mennonite Church (Arthur, Illinois, USA)
North Vine Mennonite Church, first known as the Quinn Chapel, was founded in 1957 in Cooks Mills, nine miles southeast of Arthur, Illinois, USA. A group of members who withdrew from the Arthur Mennonite Church purchased the former Methodist building in 1954 and used it for Sunday school, summer Bible school and similar activities. The group applied to the Conservative Mennonite Conference in 1955 and was accepted as a congregation. The following year Henry Plank began his long service as pastor to the congregation.
The church changed its name in the late 1980s when it moved to its present location in Arthur..
In 2019 the leading minister was Brian Petersheim and the associate pastor was Michael Helmuth. The congregational membership was 85 and the average weekly attendance was 100.
