In the far northwest corner of Berks, a house tucked in the shadow of the Blue Mountain is being reborn.
The Merkey Meetinghouse, a historic Brethren meetinghouse, is not a residence, but a house of worship. Vacant since 1963, it is finding new life as Yahweh's Free Brethren Church.
The congregation bought the old meetinghouse about nine years ago, said the Rev. Jacob "Jake" Meyer, pastor of the independent Brethren church, which has rented space in Frystown since 1980.
"It's been a long time coming," Meyer said, "and it's turning out well."TODAY'S SPONSOR:
