Who We Are

In 1984, two very different congregations came together to become Bethany of Fox Valley United Methodist Church.  Bethany UMC, a mature congregation with a long history of serving in downtown Aurora, sold their building to form a new church family with Fox Valley UMC, the newly formed and quickly growing congregation of young families serving the burgeoning Fox Valley Villages and worshipping in the Waubsonsie Valley HS Auditorium.  

Today, Bethany of Fox Valley continue to embrace the richness of its diverse church family and community to become our place to discover and experience the depths of God's love, to learn and grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ, and be guided and strengthened by the Holy Spirit to live out God's purpose for our lives.  As God has welcomed us, so we welcome all who wish to live and love and grow closer to God and each other in all of our circumstances.
