Bethany Lutheran Brethren church was started in September of 1941, by a group of families that had moved up to Connecticut from Manhattan and Brooklyn. Many had moved because of a desire to change from city life to the beautiful surroundings of the northwestern Connecticut countryside, but another strong desire was to worship the Lord together. The group initially worshipped together in North Granby, but a desire arose to witness to their new community of East Hartland.
People began meeting together in their homes to worship God by singing hymns, praying and sharing testimonies. A warm spirit of unity prevailed, but concern increased for reaching the children, the young people, and the community with the message of the gospel. On the eighth of September, followers of Christ gathered to organize what is today Bethany Lutheran Brethren Church.
