Church of the Brethren

In 1915 there was a Church of the Brethren located in the town of Mabel (which no longer exists). Would someone know if there are any other Brethren Churches in Lane County? Or where these old church records would have relocated to?

I am trying to find a marriage record for my great grandparents. My great grandmothers bible said that they were married on Aug. 1, 1915 at the Church of the Brethren in Mabel Oregon. I sent to the state of Oregon to get a copy and they said that there was no record of this marriage.

I am positive that the state didn't take the time to search the records as my grandmothers bible even gives the name of the Minister: Brother Herman H. Ritter, and it also lists his wife Mary Ritter as one of the witnesses.

Any advise would be appreciated.
