Pinesburg Mennonite Mission (Washington-Franklin Mennonite Conference), located mid-way between Williamsport, Maryland, and Clear Spring, Maryland, is the outgrowth of a Sunday school begun in a schoolhouse. In 1923 it was organized as a con­gregation under the Washington County, Maryland, and Franklin County, Pennsylvania Mission Board, by persons living in the community. In 1957, the membership was 35, with Oliver H. Martin as minister. A frame building was built in 1939.

In 2014 the church was served by Bishop Dale L. Horst, Ministers James L. Martin and Nathan W. Rohrer, and Deacon Jared L. Petre. Membership was 89.

The church was initially a Mennonite Church (MC) congregation but later affiliated with the Washington-Franklin Mennonite Conference.
