At Marysville, Ohio, the Grace Brethren Church (Clancy Cruise, pastor) is constructing a new worship facility. The 16,000 square foot building will be situated on 20 acres of land, owned free and clear by the church, at 17240 Amrine Wood Road. It will include a sanctuary/gymnasium, children’s ministry classrooms, a youth room, rooms for toddlers and infants, a gathering space, office space, kitchen, restrooms, mechanical rooms, and room for storage.
“Over the years by God’s grace, dozens have responded to the Gospel and been baptized,” says Pastor Clancy Cruise. “We have witnessed over 200 first-time decisions and 300 baptisms since we started the church. Through the years we have prayed hard, served faithfully, grown well, and grieved deeply. Through it all we are wiser and more united than ever. With that wisdom and unity, it is time to build a church home and make room for more to come to know Jesus!”
