Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Welcome! Our Sunday service begins at 10:10 am. Or you can come a little earlier and join one of our many Sunday school classes that meet every Sunday morning at 9 am. If you have additional questions that aren't answered below, please email our secretary, Judy Fortner, at or call (740) 654-7592.

Who are the United Brethren? Are you like the Mennonites?

We are a part of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ. Our doctrinal beliefs and more information can be found at our main denomination web page at By the way, we are not Mennonites, although one of our founders was.

What's the dress code on Sunday?

We want you to come as you are most comfortable. On a given Sunday, you'll find a range of dress from casual shorts and flip flops to suits and ties and dresses.

Do you have a kids' program?

Of course! Children are always welcome in our regular service. If you prefer, ask any greeter or other guest for directions to our nursery (at the end of the hall to the left of the entrance). School-age children and youth join us for the beginning of Sunday service. After announcements and music, they are dismissed to an age-appropriate program with our talented  and loving Children's Ministry Director or Youth Directors.
