Stevensville Reformed Mennonite Church (Stevensville, Ontario, Canada)
The Stevensville Reformed Mennonite congregation originated through immigration from Pennsylvania. The first minister was Samuel Beam, followed by Walter I. Tripp and Vernon F. Beam. When the Port Colborne meetinghouse was open, services were held on a biweekly basis, rotating between Stevensville and Port Colborne. When the latter meetinghouse closed in 1973, all members attended Stevensville for weekly services at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings.
In 1958 there were 41 members; in 1975, 62; in 2000, 58. The congregation has been affiliated with the Reformed Mennonite Church since 1835, when the original meetinghouse was built. The present meetinghouse was built in 1872. The language of worship is English.
The church is located at 2584 Ott Road north of Main Street in Stevensville. Bishop Paul C. Fehrman and ministers Wallace A. Bankert, Samuel B. Young, R. Marvin Bankert and Paul A. Fehrman served in 2000 as non-salaried congregational leaders.
