Old German Baptist Young Folks

While different congregations of the Old German Baptist Brethren meet to discuss the future of the church, down the road the youth socialize, pray and gather for fellowship. Early Sunday morning the youth joined the rest of the church for a prayer service.

Hess said he met Schaurer at an annual conference. The two have been dating almost two years. "That's how young folks like us meet," he said.
