Welcome to Bradley Hills Church in Bethesda!

We are a diverse, caring community of friends that embraces each person’s life and spiritual journey. Bradley Hills is a safe place to engage your faith, to ask the difficult questions of life, to learn to know God more fully, to feel the sacred presence of the Holy Spirit, and to learn about and experience Jesus Christ more deeply.

This is a church active in the world that cares about making a difference and seeks to demonstrate how God’s love can change lives. My family and I have found Bradley Hills to be an inviting and supportive community in which to raise our four young children. We are excited about our church and hope you’ll join us for worship!

Many blessings, David Gray, Pastor
