Administrative history: Arcade Mennonite Church joined the Mennonite Conference of Ontario in 1957. Arcade is located 40 miles south of Clarence, N.Y. Its charter service was held on Dec. 16, 1956 with sixteen members from five families. Edward Diener was the founding bishop; LeRoy Yoder was licensed as a minister to serve the congregation. The Arcade congregation discontinued after their minister had been set back from ministry by the conference due to conflicts within the small congregation. No accessions have been received from the Arcade congregation.
