History: A Swiss Mennonite congregation was formed in the area over 100 years ago by Mennonite immigrants from eastern Ohio, Alsace, Switzerland and France. The church joined the General Conference of Mennonites of North America in 1893. A church building was constructed in Bluffton in 1906. The original Swiss Mennonite Congregation eventually formed four separate congregations (First Mennonite Church-1918).
