Fresh Spirit

The Pitsburg Church of the Brethren will host a concert by, “Fresh Spirit”, on Sunday, August 7, 2016, at 6 PM. "Fresh Spirit” was originally a group of three sisters – Linda, Marilyn, and Pattie – who grew up traveling and singing as part of the Brewer Family. When Marilyn decided to return to her home in Tennessee, Linda and Pattie felt strongly that their ministry should continue. During this time, God was working on another of His children who had a similar background as the Brewer's -- born and raised to travel and sing. Having sung with her family for nearly 35 years until her father's home-going, Tish Newland was searching for the job God would provide for the next "chapter" of her life.

As only He can, God brought the three ladies together, and gave them harmony not only in voice, but in their hearts as well. Thus, “Fresh Spirit” was reborn and rededicated to the mission of lifting up the Body of Christ by sharing God’s goodness and love through song.

In early 2012, led by the Lord to come "off the road", sister Pattie announced her retirement and agreed to stay on until the Lord's choice for the group could be found. Our search led us to Sarah Hatfield, a young woman from the Dayton, Ohio, area, with a beautiful voice and the desire to use it for the Lord. Sarah's debut appointment with us was August 2012, and she's been hanging in there ever since!

These three ladies, along with our tremendous "sound man", Stan Covert (Linda's better half), are Fresh Spirit.

The church is located at the west edge of Pitsburg at 8376 Pitsburg-Laura Road, Arcanum, OH 45304. The public is always welcome to these concerts. For more info call: Bruce @ 937-564-2891.
