BEAR CREEK YOUTH – Reaching into the Community

As part of their effort to be in ministry in our Bear Creek community, Bear Creek Youth work together once a month in the Houston Northwest Community Center Food Pantry, located on our BCUMC campus.  We make hundreds of snack bags, so that every child whose family comes to the food pantry each month will have something of their very own to take home.  We welcome all youth who enjoy serving to come and join us!

BEAR CREEK YOUTH: STAY CONNECTED

If you are a youth (grades 6-12) or have a youth in your home, we would love for you to be a part of our fellowship!  Please email email hidden; JavaScript is required to be added to the list for our electronic Bear Creek Youth newsletter.
