History: In February 1913 20 people, mostly members of the Silver Street church, decided to organize a new city church. They purchased a building at 616 S 5th St. The congregation known as 5th Street Mennonite had 15 charter members. In early 1919 the present site was acquired and the name changed to 8th Street Mennonite Church with a membership of 90. Current ministry includes worship, children and youth ministries, a preschool, Interfaith Hospitality Network and other community programs. Membership currently stands at 245.
