In the summer of 1980 a small group of people who were interested in starting a church began to meet. Pastor Al Baker led Sycamore from the summer of 1981 until winter of 1982.
At that time Sycamore’s congregation was meeting at Gordon Elementary School. In June 1982, Harry Long came to Sycamore as its second church planter. In 1984, the church was particularized and has been led by Pastor Harry Long since then.
In 1983 we were blessed with a 7-acre piece of land in Midlothian, VA. In 1989, we broke ground on the land and built our current sanctuary and 1/3 of our offices/classrooms. Since then, the building has expanded twice and three other churches have been planted from the Sycamore congregation.
In 2017 our site plan was updated and we held a 19-month campaign to improve our outdoor footprint and meeting space, which included Sycamore Community Park, a fantastic, ADA compliant playground.
We do not want to be only the sum of our facilities and minstry programs; we pray continually that our building will be used to lead people to a relationship with Jesus Christ.
