Otterbein United Methodist Church
Welcome to Otterbein United Methodist Church!
Our congregation has been worshiping at the corner of West Market and High Streets for over 125 years. We would love for you to come and share that experience with us. Otterbein is committed to serving our neighbors no matter where they might be - just down the street, in another state, or across the world. The invitation is always open for you to join us on this journey.
- Rev. Adam Blagg
