In 2003, God planted a seed in the hearts of a few members of the Patterson Avenue SDA Church. The Patterson Avenue Church was “bursting at the seams” and it was clear that a golden opportunity existed to spawn a new congregation.
The small group envisioned planting a Church in the far west end of Richmond, VA. The idea was presented in March 2003 at a Church Board meeting. Enthusiastic members began to conduct Church planting meetings at Chris and Shuganti Caradonna's home. At each meeting we reminded ourselves to:
Throughout the years we have tried to keep these values at the forefront of our actions and in our hearts. Through God’s leading, we have grown from 12 people with a desire to see His work carried forth in the far west end of Richmond, VA, to a multicultural, multi-generational family of God representing over 30 different countries.
In September, 2018 the Far West End SDA Church realized a long cherished and labored for dream when our new building was completed and we worshiped here for the first time. We have seen God's hand and providence in so many challenges. We praise Him for his undeserved grace!
