We seek to be a church where everyone – young or old, new believer or mature Christian, life-long Richmonder or new in town – feels at home.
We come from all walks of life. We learn from one another and share with one another a variety of faith, social, and political perspectives. We treasure the rich diversity of our members and friends!
We like to think of our church as a place where you can grow and serve: Grow in spiritually, grow with your family, grow in grace, grow and serve as we gather for worship and education, service and fellowship.

Following Christmas, Christians enter the season of Epiphany. Traditionally, this is the season when the church celebrates God’s revelation; God revealed through Jesus Christ, the Light of the World. Here at Bon Air Presbyterian Church, we will join that celebration and accept Christ’s call to be light-bearers and to share the Good News of the Gospel.
For us, the Season of Epiphany will be our Season of Hospitality. Throughout the months of January and February, we will explore how we can accept and live out Christ’s Great Commission to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18) through acts of Christian Hospitality.
During February, we will continue our worship focus on the ministry hospitality and our call to invite and welcome people into our family of faith.
February 5: Welcome to the Welcome Table
Consider the effort we put into holiday celebrations to help people feel at home. The communion table is our holy-day celebration and everyone is welcome.

February 19: Companionship in the Face of Tragedy
When a friend or family member is facing illness, loss, or tragedy, what is a faithful response beyond saying, “I’ll pray for you.”?

How can we engage in hospitality ministries in our multicultural, interfaith society?
Soup and Sandwich with the Pastor. During our Season of Hospitality, Pastor Janet will host hour-long lunch discussions following the 11:00 worship service.

BE OUR GUEST
Coming to church for the first time may feel a bit intimidating if you are unfamiliar with worship. At Bon Air Presbyterian Church, we want you to know that most of us have had a “first Sunday” experience and we really want yours to be as warm and inviting as possible. We will do our best to help you feel welcome and experience the presence of our living and loving God. Come and join us on a journey of life in faith together.
Style of Worship
We pray, we sing, we listen to the word of God as it is spoken and sung by our choir and gifted soloists. Check out previous sermon texts and recordings which are available on this website. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper (communion) on the first Sunday of each month.
Children are Welcome
We provide our youngest members with warm and nurturing care by staff and church members in our nursery during both worship hours as well as during the education hour. Children are an integral part of our church family and are welcomed participants in worship.
Prayer is important to us
We welcome requests for particular joys or concerns to be included in the Prayers of the People during worship. Please write your request on a Prayer Request Card and give it to an usher prior to the service.
Sunday school and adult education
Each Sunday, education programs are offered to all ages.
Coffee with the Pastor
Are you a visitor or a new resident of our community? Our pastor would love to welcome you and answer any questions you may have about our church. Coffee with the Pastor is offered quarterly on Sunday mornings to anyone who is interested. However, individual conversations and meetings over coffee are encouraged and may be set up by contacting the church office.
