Somerset Mennonite Fellowship in Stoystown, Pennsylvania, USA was established as a daughter congregation of Emmanuel Christian Fellowship in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. In 1993 the congregation decided to start a new church in a location without a conservative Mennonite witness, would support agricultural enterprises, and would be within a couple hour drive of Emmanuel.

The first families moved in early 1994. Services were held in home for several months until a local church building was purchased. The first service in the church was held 26 June 1994.

In 2018 the church was a member of the Mennonite Christian Fellowship and had 80 members. Lynn M. Diller was the Bishop assisted by Ministers Michael Byers, Philip Kauffman and James Weaver and Deacon John Byers.
