Roden, a town (1947 population, 6,596, with 48 Mennonites) in the Dutch province of Drente. Mennonites living here in 1937 formed a Fellowship (Kring), which was at first served by the pastor of the Den Horn congregation. In 1950 the circle joined the Groningen congregation and was under the care of the pastor of this congregation, from 1951 under Miss C. E. Offerhaus. In 1954 the circle organized as an independent congregation and built a church, which was dedicated on 6 March 1955. The Roden congregation in 1958 numbered 42 baptized members. It had a ladies' circle and a Sunday school for children. Miss Offerhaus served until 1957; since 1958 C. de Groot was pastor, serving also the recently established Haren congregation.
