The Bethany Church of the Brethren has been sharing the love of Christ by serving the Farmington area of Delaware since 1910. The church family has been in its current building since 1920. Over the more than 100 years of their existence as a church body they have been living out the call from the New Testament to “love God, love your neighbor” and care for those who are hungry, thirsty, those in need of hospitality, clothing, a visit whether sick or in prison. Our worship is simple, yet meaningful, bringing one into the presence of God through singing, sharing, exploring the sacred words of the Bible and praying for the needs of the people and the world. Creating community and connection is important to the group. Our history informs us that this is the best way to learn about who God is and why a relationship with our Creator matters. We believe we learn, grow spiritually, and are strengthened in our faith when we participate in a community of seekers and believers.
