Our Services

What are services like?
Important to our corporate worship life is sharing the joys and concerns of our lives, scripturally based and culturally relevant preaching, time for silence and personal reflection, and congregational singing. Worship seeks to blend interactive and traditional styles in order to celebrate the many ways our members connect with God.

What is the community like?
We are a small congregation with a large vision and even bigger hearts where you can find thoughtful, loving, and involved people. Our congregation seeks to explore the spiritual side of our active lives and the active side of our spirituality. We focus our ministry in five areas: outreach, education, stewardship, hospitality, and worship.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We have members from many denominational and religious traditions. All parts of our worship are open to you, despite your religious affiliation, faith, doubt, or orientation. We welcome all people to our congregation.

Leadership View all

Carrie and Torin Eikler

Carrie and Torin Eikler joined the Morgantown Church of the Brethren family in May, 2007 and are ordained ministers in the Church of the Brethren. Trained at Bethany Theological Seminary in Richmond, Indiana, Carrie and Torin hold Masters of Divinity degrees, both graduating with distinction shortly before their installment at MCOB. Believing that faith is to be lived out in the world around them, Carrie and Torin have served through volunteer work in Brethren Volunteer Service with various peace groups and human service programs; while at seminary they managed a food cooperative, incorporating their love of people with their love of good food. Their quest to engage the world has given them the desire to travel, as well as the desire to find God in the beauty of their garden. Walking, biking, playing ultimate Frisbee and soccer, foreign and independent films, cooking, and “leisure” reading (science fiction and fantasy for Torin, British mysteries for Carrie) are all important elements of their lives. They seek to integrate heart and mind into their ministry and spirituality. As co-pastors, they have time to “co-parent” their sons Sebastian, Alistair, and Patrick. We invite you to get to know Carrie, Torin, Sebastian and Alistair better: during worship at church, over a bowl of soup and fresh bread at their house, at a soccer match, or by taking a walk together.
