Woodland Mennonite Church (Mennonite Church), located at 1837 Woodland Avenue, Wichita, Kansas, now extinct, started as Mennonite Gospel Mission in a rented building at 1202 South Pattie Ave., 17 April 1921. Vernon Shellenberger was the first superintendent, with Paul Erb as nonresident minister and T. M. Erb as bishop. In 1924 a new building was erected on Woodland Avenue in the northwestern part of the city. The mission character of the work had to make room for a church home for Mennonite famiies living in the city, and for an increasing number of working girls. Resident pastors were Henry J. King 1924-1927, Leroy Thayer 1927-1936, I. Mark Ross 1940-1945, Glen Whitaker 1948-1951, Edward Kauffman 1951-1952. The last service was held 28 September 1952, and the property was sold soon after. Mission work by the Mennonite Church was later carried out in a section called Eureka Gardens, and at an African American church at 10th and Piatt erected in 1959.
