Inman Mennonite Church (Inman, Kansas, USA)
The Inman Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church USA) is located at 304 South Pine, Inman, McPherson County, Kansas. It is a member of the Western District Conference, and dates almost to the coming of the Mennonites to Kansas and the establishment of the Hoffnungsau congregation, its mother church. Because of the large area of settlement, Sunday schools were soon started in various schoolhouses in the outlying areas of the settlement. In 1909 the mother church erected and dedicated a small church building in Inman as a home mission project, supplying it with ministers. In 1921 this group organized as the Inman Mennonite Church with 106 charter members and Abraham Albrecht as pastor. Nine ministers had served as pastor by 1955, with Ben Rahn pastor at that time. The 1953 membership was 206. A new modern church was dedicated on 3 March 1955. The 2004 membership was 130.
