Mount Hermon Mennonite Church (Southeastern Mennonite Conference), also known as Mutton Hollow Church, located in Stanardsville in the Blue Ridge Mountains between Lydia and Geer, Green County, Virginia, was originally a mission church under the Virginia Mennonite Conference. The congregation was organized in 1936 and services were first held in a Brethren church. In April 1947 a new stone building was dedicated.

The membership in 1957 was 20, with Warren A. Kratz as minister. In 2014 the church had 47 members and was a member of the Southeastern Mennonite Conference. The ministerial team included Bishop Nelson R. Showalter, Ministers Vernon Peachey and Jonathan Lee, and Deacon Mervin Glick.
