God is moving in our midst. Will you listen anew and afresh to the Spirit-- living out the love of Jesus for each of us; finding your place in carrying out the mission to which God is calling you? Together we are greater than the sum of our parts and with the Spirit of God moving, energizing, and inspiring, great, marvelous, and wonderful things will be accomplished. We are in this together, we are God's church known as the Church of the Brethren in Southern Ohio and Kentucky . . . the church with over 50 meeting places throughout this region with more meeting places to come.

Reflections from our District Executive

“Here in the Busy City” (Tune: 76 76 )   
Here in the busy city
now let the church be seen
where lesser gods are worshipped
in money and machine;
where news is but sensation,
the Good News hardly heard
now let the church take action
in living out the word!

In policies and planning
the church be there to speak
to moderate the powerful,
to argue for the weak:
where law must sit in judgement
and love is little known,
there at the crisis centre
the Christ concern be shown.

Where litter chokes the gutter
and people go to waste,
where joblessness is bitter
and living lost its taste
to underlevened people
be proof of rising yeast,
in lives devoid of flavour
be saltiness released!

Here in the busy city
God walks on every street
in generous or greedy,
the honest or the cheat,
and daily we must offer
the good that goes unpriced
with vigour and with vision
the lifestyle of the Christ.


A hymn from The Covenant Hymnal: a worshipbook  #697.
