The Brethren Church, is often mistaken for Amish or Mennonites, but the Brethren have different historical and theological roots. The Brethren Church is a "Plain" church. Members dress plainly and, like the Amish, are pacifists, but they do use cars and phones.

    Rosanna, you certainly bring back memories! I was born and raised German Baptist (Beech Grove district, Indiana), but left the church when I was 18 (not say’n how many years ago but it was a long time!!). My folks later transitioned to Church of the Brethren. Although I didn’t stay in the German Baptist church, I have many fond memories of attending Annual Conference, young folks gatherings, and church services. Thank you for sharing about our background and reminding me of my roots.
