Woodland Mennonite Mission (Mennonite Church) was opened in a small community of fourteen homes located 2 miles west of Milroy, Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, in the summer of 1940 by John L. Mast, senior bishop of the Locust Grove Conservative Mennonite Church, in the township schoolhouse. On 25 August 1951, the schoolhouse was purchased by the church and re­modeled for use as a church. In 1957 there were six members, with Ivan Yoder as pastor.
