The Slanesville Community Mennonite Church in Slanesville, West Virginia, USA was established in 2000. The congregation started as outreach of the Mine Road Amish Mennonite Church.

The Mine Road church, located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania became aware of a non-Mennonite couples in Slanesville who wanted to fellowship with a conservative Christian church. The fact that the area had no conservative Anabaptist church appealed to those considering the area. Several families from Mine Road, including Minister Elmer Glick, moved into the area in 2000 to evangelize the community. Other families joined the group from Faith Mission Fellowship (Free Union, Virginia), Harmony Christian Fellowship (Millington, Maryland), and New York state.

In 2017 the church was a member of the Beachy Amish Mennonite Fellowship and had a membership of 48. The bishop was Elmer D. Glick, and the minister was Daniel R. Stoltzfus.
