Home » About Us » Our History
Stanley and Louise Baldwin, members of First Friends Church in Newport News, Virginia, moved to Richmond. Realizing the need for a Friends church in the area, they sought assistance from the denomination, then known as the Ohio Yearly Meeting of Friends, to help fulfill their dream, but there were too few Friends here at the time to attempt a church plant.
The First Church Building
As the years went by, the desire for a church grew in the hearts of the Baldwins. After 14 years of seeking God, the Baldwins finally saw Hanover Friends Church become a reality with 8 charter members! The first building, now known as the “big room” or the Day School Building, was dedicated just two years later in 1966. Average Sunday morning attendance had grown to twenty five dedicated people who stepped out in faith and sacrificed to make sure that those who would later follow would have an opportunity to get connected!
The Congregation Grew
As more and more people got connected to new life in Jesus Christ through the ministry that was taking place here, our congregation grew to an average of over 100 people on Sunday mornings! To house this expanding congregation, we built and dedicated our larger, present sanctuary.
Friendly Care Day School Established
The leadership at HEFC saw a need in the community for quality child care, which in turn became a huge ministry opportunity. In order to meet that need, an outreach effort began with the launching of the Friendly Care Day School!
Construction of the Gym
The construction and dedication of the gym was a very exciting time in the history of our church. This new building represented another opportunity for outreach and an additional way to connect people to the abundant life available through Christ!
On September 18th, 2005 we dedicated our newly renovated sanctuary and launched the Connecting this Generation to Life stewardship campaign. The generations before us sought and saw God’s provision time after time as new buildings were constructed creating the very places where many of us got connected to Christ. Now it is our turn! We must seize the opportunity to connect this generation to Life!
We are a growing, healthy church impacting our community for Jesus. We would love for you to come and join us!
