Church family,

We have lost one of our own today. This morning, Dr. Greg Brewton completed his race and was received into the arms of our Savior. Greg and Holly have been exemplary members at Ninth & O since December 2010. Greg was an integral part of our worship ministry. He joyfully led our choir for a decade and served as our interim Worship Pastor for several months in 2016.

Our hearts are heavy and grieving. We weep with Holly, Allison (Josh), and Justin. We pray that they might sense the nearness of the Lord and receive peace from the God of all comfort and the Father of all mercies. We rejoice that Greg’s faith is now sight and that he worships among the myriad of fellow believers in the presence of our King in everlasting joy. We grieve but not like those without hope. Greg is with our Shepherd, and our Shepherd is with us. Maranatha.


Visitation for Greg will be from 2–8 PM on Friday, October 1, at Ratterman & Sons Funeral Home, 3800 Bardstown Road. Worship service in celebration of his life will be at 1 PM on Saturday, October 2, at Alumni Chapel at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Burial will be private at Cave Hill Cemetery.

For the celebration service on Saturday, we have been invited to participate with the choir in that service.  For those wishing to participate, rehearsal will be at 11 AM on Saturday.  Refreshments will be provided after rehearsal before the service begins at 1:00.

Anyone desiring to participate is asked to register at this link to ensure enough sheet music and food is prepared.
