The Sonnenberg Station Website is moving!

Click here to go to the new site, which has our new Spring 2014 schedule and other information. This URL will be redirected to the new site shortly.

We began in the Spring of 2006, with a simple goal:  A few men gathering to sing songs of faith and everyday life.  This is our 8th Spring together and while that time has flown by, the experience has been outstanding!

We chose the name Sonnenberg Station because it gives us a unique local identity and we like the sound of it.  Sonnenberg Station was an old train station that served what was known as the Sonnenberg community through the late 1800's and most of the 1900's, and was located at a railroad crossing about a mile northeast of the Sonnenberg Mennonite and Salem Mennonite Churches near Kidron, Ohio. For more info about the origin of the name, check out the About Us page.
