White Cloud Mennonite (Mennonite Church) Church, located one mile southeast of White Cloud, Michigan, is in the Indiana-Michigan Mennonite Conference.   Mennonite families from the Shore congregation in Lagrange County, Indiana, began moving into the area in 1896. Regular Sunday-school services were started in a schoolhouse in 1898 and the next year Bishop P. Y. Lehman of Indiana organized a congregation of 22 charter members. In 1900, when the congregation had grown to 35 members, Bishop John F. Funk ordained Jacob P. Miller (1850-1927) to the min­istry. On 1 May 1901, P. Y. Lehman ordained him as bishop. In 1903 the congregation began to worship in a building known as the Union Church, and for a time was known by this name. After 1910 J. P. Miller was no longer located at White Cloud, and T. U, Nelson (1870-1950) became the long-time preacher, having been ordained by Miller on 5 December 1910. The pastor of the church in 1958 was Edward D. Jones, and the membership was 54.
