Sharon Conservative Mennonite Church located at Ragersville (south of Sugarcreek), Ohio, was established in 1951 and had 51 members by 1957. Harry J. Stutzman was its bishop.

It was originally known as the Ragersville Mission, and was affiliated with the Pleasant View Mennonite Church. It was identified as a separate congregation in 1954.

Originally the congregation was part of the Conservative Mennonite Conference. About 1980 it withdrew and became an independent Mennonite congregation for almost 30 years.

The church joined the Biblical Mennonite Alliance in July 2011. In 2019 the leading minister was Edward Yoder and the associate pastors were Tom Mullet and Javan Raber. The congregational membership was 100.
