Name: North Park Mennonite Church (Grand Rapids, Mich.)

Historical Note: North Park Mennonite Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan began as a house church attended by four Mennonite families.  In 1969, the Indiana-Michigan Mennonite Conference financed half of the purchase a chapel for the house church, with the fledgling congregation responsible for the other half.  Within 10 years, the congregation had 53 members and had paid off its mortgage.  Congregational activities included friendship evangelism, sponsorship of a refugee family from Vietnam, and local television broadcasts of "Monday Night with Mennonites."  In 1993, the congregation decided to dissolve itself and sell the church building.
