    I live in Newton Twp. just south of Covington. The horse and buggy GB’s that I know have two churches. One is east of Covington, the other west of Pleasant Hill. They alternate churches so that travel time is equal.

    We live near a German Baptist Brethren area here in Indiana, so I’m looking forward to learning more about them! I’ve done a little research by reading The Back Road to Heaven, which covers several different plain groups.

    Just discovered that Google Reader was not flagging your posts so am late to answer this. The Old Order German Baptist Brethren have three congregations in the Bradford Ohio area. The ones at Painter’s Creek and Covington have meeting houses. The congregation centered near Gettysburg/Bradford have home services rotating between the member’s homes. All three congregations worship together weekly rotating the location of the meeting between the three venues.

    Yes, the church you are looking for meets in a meeting house. I believe they have two in Ohio. One is near Covington, OH on Rt 41 just South of Farrington road. You can see the open shed near the back of the lot to hold the horses.
