Bethia Open Arms Ministry is Expanding!!!!  We’re now hoping to expand our horizons by adding a visitation arm to the Meals Ministry that will be called “visiting Angels”. We have so many lonely folks in our midst – whether church family members or those in the community or assisted living or nursing homes. So many are left with no one to “love on them” as they face each new day.  We could visit occasionally or send a card or take a small gift, (like a secret pal, but not so secret). Visiting angels choose the time and ways that are convenient and how you can show the love of Christ. If you would like to be a part of our Open Arms Meal and/or Visitation Ministry, please call Jackie Nauman 804-739-7931 or email This is your opportunity to reach out to others giving love and support. We need your help!

Current Missions


BETHIA BISTRO MINISTRY UPDATE: Life is good in the Bistro! It is a buzzing place with people laughing, connecting, and meeting new and old friends. We have been open for about ten months now and we have had a wonderful time. If you’d like to get involved in the Bistro ministry stop by and sign up for a time slot to be in the Bistro. You simply help friends as needed, refresh supplies, and talk with people from all our services. It is great!
If you don’t think you’d like to sign up for a slot we always appreciate receiving cookies, cakes, donuts, K-cups and mints to share with Bethia’s family and visitors to our church. We also accept donations for this ministry. If you’d like to help out this way just place your donation in the offering with Bistro Fund on the memo line.  The Bistro has certainly blessed us and we hope it has blessed you as well.
