Administrative history

In 1911 a congregation was organized in the Waldheim as a second group along with the Langham group to form the Zoar Mennonite Church. They met in rented facilities. In 1912, they built their own meeting house. In 1917 they joined the Conference of Mennonites. The meeting house was renovated in 1958. In 1960 there was a division which led to the formation of a new congregation, Grace Mennonite Mission in 1961.
