Pequea Amish Mennonite Church in Narvon, Pennsylvania, USA was established in 1962. It was a daughter church of Weavertown Amish Mennonite Church in Ronks, Pennsylvania.

The official establishment of the Pequea congregation was preceded by two years of Sunday school at the Honey Brook Grange Hall. In 1961 Weavertown voted to establish another meetingplace, and to meet in two locations. The new building was dedicated 20 May 1962. Members were encouraged to attend the closest meetingplace.

In 2013 the church was a member of the Beachy Amish Mennonite Fellowship and had a membership of 115. The Bishops were Ben A. Stoltzfus and Jonathan S. Stoltzfus, the Minister was John E. Glick, and the Deacons were Floyd Stoltzfus and Melvin S. Zook.
