Grace Mennonite Church (Enid, Oklahoma, USA)
Grace Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church USA), located at Enid, Oklahoma, was begun as a mission project by the Western District Conference in 1934, when J. B. Frey was instructed to explore the field. H. N. Harder was called to the work in September 1935, and in 1938 the church was organized with 20 charter members. On 16 July 1939 the new church building was dedicated. H. N. Harder left in May 1943 and was succeeded on 1 June 1944 by Ben Rahn, who served until 1 June 1947. Albert J. Unruh served after that time. Membership grew from 37 in 1940 to 126 in 1955. On 1 January 1954 the church became self-supporting. In 2007 the membership was 100; the Interim Pastor was C. Dennis Treat.
