Our History …

The Brethren Church began in Germany in 1708 with a small group Bible study, being dissatisfied with the established church of that time. Shortly after its founding, the Brethren Church came to America, settling first in Germantown Pennsylvania in 1719. The Brethren were a rural people, sharing the good news of Christ with the early Pennsylvania kitchen being the center of its witness and service.

Over the last two centuries the Brethren Church has seen great change, with the establishment of churches throughout the United States, and missions throughout the world. Headquartered in Ashland Ohio, the Brethren church continues its work through Ashland University, Ashland Theological Seminary and the over 120 congregations that comprise the denomination.

Our Church …

The Cheyenne Brethren Church was established in 1944 by a group of Brethren who had moved to the area and held a common desire to have a Brethren church in their community. We continue to promote the ideals of the Brethren Church through the centrality of the Bible, the ministry priority of all believers, and the commitment to fulfill the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.
Today some 75 years later our church has become transformed and transformational. The church is filled with families of all ages now centering on discipleship through small group bible studies meeting regularly throughout the week, ministry to youth, young adults, and children also occur through weekly gatherings. The purpose of each is helping our congregation be a bridge to a new life in the community, nation, and the world at large.
The discipleship process stresses the importance of not merely understanding the Christian life, but actively encourages living it out. We are active in our community through partnerships with Habitat for Humanity, Community Action, Salvation Army, and other outreach activities in the area. In 2016 the church sent a mission team of 15 to Puerto Rico to minister and gain an understanding of another culture. Additionally, the congregation is very involved with Operation Christmas Child, one of the outreach ministries of Samaritans Purse. In 2018 the church assembled and delivered to the local collection center a total of 780 shoeboxes to be shipped overseas for ministry.
