“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!”  

~ Psalm 133:1

Since 1972, BCU has consisted of churches and other organizations who desire  to spiritually move our community into a closer relationship with our LORD and SAVIOR, and to glorify GOD in all that we do!


We provide for our neighbors in the Bethel Township/Clark County area, when they need  help with emergency food supply; spiritual guidance; funds for utilities, gas, or rent. How? Through the commitment of FAITH, the help of great VOLUNTEERS, and excellent outside RESOURCES.

In Loving Memory

Thank you for 20 years of dedicated service!  You are loved and remembered.  We will see you on the other side of Jordan.
