Kauffman Mennonite Church (Manheim, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Kauffman Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church) was a member of the Lancaster Conference in 1957, located on the Kauffman farm on the Manheim Pike in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The congregation had formerly (prior to 1860) met at Sun Hill, several miles from the Manheim Pike location, but when it moved it adopted the name of its benefactor, Abraham Kauffman, who gave his farm of 97 acres to the church. The first meeting house here was built in 1860, enlarged in 1891, and remodeled around 1957. It was earlier a part of the Hernley-Erb circuit, but by 1957 had its separate ministers. Homer D. Bomberger was the bishop, William Heisey was minister, and Ernest Bauman, deacon in 1957. The membership in 1954 was 72.
