Arlington Mennonite Church (Reno County, Kansas, USA)
The Arlington Mennonite Church (affiliated with the General Conference Mennonite Church), Westminster Township, Reno County, Kansas was organized on 30 November 1905, with 25 members. Most of the families were Swiss-Galician Mennonites who had come to Kansas at the end of the 19th century. In 1907 a house of worship was built near Arlington, which was destroyed by fire in October 1924. A new church was dedicated in June 1925. John P. Linscheid served as minister until 1937. After that time various ministerial students and others assisted with the services. George Kopper was the second minister. In 1953 John F. Schmidt was serving the congregation of thirty members.
