The church is conveniently located on the west edge of Pitsburg, with ample parking and an access ramp, lift chair and floor to floor lift (which accommodates a wheel chair) for those who are physically challenged.  On the lower level is a modern kitchen, fellowship hall. On the upper main level is a nursery which is clean and safe.  We have competent individuals available to watch small children during Worship. 

Besides regular Sunday services, we have Bible studies and other gathering times for fun and fellowship. The mission of the Pitsburg Church of the Brethren is to serve all people by encouraging fellowship, love and compassion; by living as empowered disciples of Jesus Christ, Simply, Peacefully, Together.
