The Vickeryville, Moncalm County, Michigan settlement of the Groffdale Old Order Mennonite Conference was started in 1992. The founding families of this settlement came mostly from the main Elkhart County settlement. As with the founding of the Fulton-Marshall County settlement, the search for available and cheap farmland was the motive for founding this settlement. The community rented a vacant township hall along Vickeryville Road as a temporary meetinghouse. Worship services were regularly conducted here until 2009 when a new meetinghouse was constructed. As of 1 January 2011 this settlement had approximately 35 households.
