Stadskanaal, a village in the Dutch province of Groningen, is the seat of a Mennonite congregation founded in 1848 with 13 members. At first it was combined with Veendam, but by 1850 it was independent. In that year the present meetinghouse was built. An organ was installed in 1904. The baptized membership numbered 32 in 1852, 56 in 1861, 106 in 1900, and 82 in 1958. Its first preacher was L. F. Goteling Vinnis, serving here 1852-55; he was followed by A. S. Hoitsema 1856-98, J. Wuite 1898-1903, and J. J. Heep 1904-13. After a few years of vacancy, it was served in 1917-50 by the pastors of Assen. Since 1952 Miss H. G. Zijlstra has been the pastor of Stadskanaal. There is a Sunday school for children and a ladies' circle. Some members of the Panman family living at Stadskanaal have served the congregation well.
