Laurelville’s Association & Gatherings

In 1943, a group of Mennonite households came together to purchase the sacred space we fondly call Laurelville. This founding group called “The Association” remains as the heart and soul of our organization. It has grown into a network of hundreds of key stakeholders from all faith backgrounds who love Laurelville and play a vital role in supporting and growing our mission and ministry.
