It is the intent of Bear Creek UMC to be good stewards of the beautiful building, furnishings, contents, and grounds that we are blessed with. While we view the primary role of these facilities to be a support of Bear Creek UMC programs and ministries, we recognize that they hold additional potential for good beyond this. Therefore, we have and will continue to seek out partners who share our overall commitment to a better community and world and can benefit from the use of our facilities.
