Are any PB members able to recommend a solid reformed church in the Columbus, Ohio, area?

In a few months, I'll be moving to Columbus for a new job. I lived there temporarily last year. During that time, I found a church that I like. It is non-denominational and does not overtly claim the "reformed" label. But, the preaching is excellent. The church website also includes recommendations for books by solid authors such as Dr. David Murray. I intend to contact the pastors at some point to find out where they stand on the Confessions, the Sabbath, the RPW, etc.

Regardless of their answers, I would like to explore other reformed churches in the area. I would prefer to join an RB church. However, I am open to attending a Presbyterian church if there are no good RB options. Thanks!

No connection, but a quick search shows at least one 1689 confession church in the metro area: http://www.covenantcommunitychurchofnewark.com/

As a Presbyterian, I'd probably start with one of the OPC congregations in the area:
https://graceopc.org/

http://providenceopc.us/

Covenant Community Church is actually on my list of churches to try, but it is about 45-50 minutes away from where I will be living. Lord willing, I'd like to find something a bit closer.

My mom has been attending an OPC church, and I'm favorably impressed with it. If I end up attending a Presbyterian church, that would be the denomination I'd want to try.

Thanks!!

Okay, I see. A few choices from the Presbyterian Side that are closer to downtown:

OPC - Grace OPC (in Worthington, so a bit farther out from downtown)
PCA - Grace Central (Short North)
PCA - Hope Presbyterian (Grandview/Upper Arlington)

I serve at Walnut Creek Presbyterian Church in Gahanna.

As mentioned by others, there is another OPC church in Pataskala, Providence, where my in-laws attend and serve. On the west side there's two PCA churches, New City and Northwest Presbyterian. We also started a church plant in Westerville, called Story Presbyterian Church.

If you have any questions, let me know!

I would recommend a LOT of due diligence with any "New City" church. It might be OK, but the name is a warning, just as a "Redeemer" usually serves as a signal of what to expect.

Thank you all for your input! Grace OPC looks promising, and I will also investigate the other suggestions. I've found another small Reformed Baptist church to add to my list as well.
