Bethany Christian Church Richmond Virginia

who we are



We are a family of faith, growing in Christ, growing through service. We come from all walks of life, were born in 10 different decades and have no shortage of differing opinions. But what we have in common is far more important than our differences: a desire to worship God, serve and explore our faith.


Bethany was organized in 1890 and moved to its present location in 1959. It was originally called Cowardin Avenue Christian Church. Bethany is one of 12 Disciples churches in the greater Richmond area.
