According to the GAMEO article: "The first informal organization of the United Mennonites in the Virgil area took place on 4 October 1936 when a church council and Sunday school teachers were elected. In fall 1937 the decision was made to build a church on Stone Road on land donated by John Suderman. The basement and shell of the main floor were completed in January 1938. The sanctuary was completed in 1940. On 25 January 1938 the group decided to apply for a charter under the name of Niagara Mennonite Church. A formal organizational meeting took place 1 February 1938 with 38 charter members. Peter Kroeker was elected as the leading minister. C. K. Neufeld joined him later in 1938."
