As Eastern District and Franconia Conferences continue to work together, we are taking time to get to know one another more with introductions to our congregations. Join in the fun–submit your congregational introduction to eralph@franconiaconference.org!

West Swamp Mennonite Church began as the “Swamp Charge” in 1717 with German immigrant families meeting in homes. The first log meetinghouse was constructed in 1735and the first building on our current location, 2501 Allentown Road, Quakertown, PA, was built in 1790. It would be replaced in 1819 and 1873.
