The Washington Center Mennonite Church (Central Conference), now extinct, located near Ashley, Michigan, some 25 miles (40 km) north of Lansing, was organized in 1924 by a number of families which had moved into the area from Pekin, Illinois, in the early 1920s, together with three families from the Ashley Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church [MC]) congregation. The group bought a church in 1924. It never had a minister and never reached more than 27 in membership. In 1933 the group dissolved, some members returning to the Mennonite Church congregation.
