City Life Center
In December of 2013, Bethel Church purchased the building formerly owned by the Boys & Girls Club on 5th Avenue in Gary, Indiana. Wanting to utilize the building to serve the community in greater ways, Bethel’s leadership decided to establish a separate 501(C)(3) community organization. The City Life Center (CLC) is the fruit of that decision and now serves the community through programs, services, and acts of compassion.
Hundreds of school-age children are served by the CLC—especially through the afterschool program. As part of More + Better, Bethel will make a substantial investment in CLC’s effort to reach the next generation.
