Towamencin Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church), located in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, a member of the Franconia Mennonite Conference. Jacob Godshalk, who served as the first bishop for the Mennonites of America from 1708, settled in the present Towamencin Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, in 1713 or earlier. By 1728 the first Towamencin Mennonite meetinghouse had been built. About 1804 this building burned to the ground. In 1805 a stone building was erected, replaced about sixty years later. The present meetinghouse, the fourth, was built in 1925, 50 x 74 feet. The Towamencin pulpit seems to have been supplied by the Skippack preachers until 1876, when Christian Allebach (1841-1917) was ordained to the ministry. In 1958 the minister was Ellis L. Mack, with a membership of 219.
