Cincinnati Mennonite Fellowship began in October 1974. A total of nine people to include Pastor Mark Weidner, started meeting every other Monday in each others’ homes for fellowship and worship. By the spring of 1975, attendance had grown to 12 or 13 people and began meeting on Sunday of each week. Regular Sunday morning services were first scheduled the fall of 1975. A group Affirmation and Covenant was adopted in January 1976 and was signed by approximately 20 members. The Covenant has been signed every year since that first signing. The following spring, CMF joined the Ohio and Eastern Conference of the Mennonite Church and the Central District of the General Conference.
Church meeting location changed as the needs of the congregation grew. CMF now has about 130 people on our register. We purchased our own meeting space in December 1997 at our present location. We are currently affiliated with the Central District Conference (CDC) of Mennonite Church USA (MC USA).
Anyone seeking to know more about CMF history to present day is welcomed to visit the office or speak with our church historian.
