We ask that each family participating bring a main dish, a side dish, or a desert and to drop it off in the kitchen during the Sunday School hour. Please sign up on the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board in the lobby so we know how many people and how much food to expect! There will be no cost.

    Continuing the Work of Jesus. Peacefully. Simply. Together.

    Welcome to the website of the Green Tree Church of the Brethren. Please accept my invitation to explore this website and learn more about our congregation and the Church of the Brethren. When people express interest in who we are, it is common for us to respond with the following phrase: “Continuing the Work of Jesus. Peacefully. Simply. Together.” This phrase encapsulates our attempt to follow Jesus in an effort to further his kingdom here on this earth. In essence we are a group of people who endeavor to continue the work Jesus started over 2000 years ago. As you surf through the links provided on this site, hopefully you will discover ways in which we continue Jesus’ work in the world today. I invite you to join us in this endeavor and to walk with us as we grow in the faith together. Please come worship with us soon and learn more about the activities and events that we offer. David Leiter Pastor
