History: In the late 1800's and early 1900's Low German Mennonites arrived in Kansas, mostly emigrating from the Molotschna Colony in South Russia. Hoffnungsau Mennonite Church (rural Inman) organized in 1874 and was the "mother" church of several area churches. Buhler Mennonite Church was organized when Hoffnungsau built a worship center for Buhler area members. As communities grew and needs changed the Buhler Mennonite Church and Inman Mennonite Church incorporated as independent churches within the Western District Conference (1920's). BMC grew steadily and presently (almost 100 years later) has about the same membership as it did when it celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1946. It enjoys a vibrant worship setting and is committed to Christian service across the street and around the world. In 2000 Hebron Mennonite Church (Buhler) merged with BMC.
