City Life Center connects the community to opportunities, resources, and information that help families to thrive.
In December of 2013, Bethel Church became the new owner of the 41,000-square-foot building formerly owned by the John Will Anderson Boys & Girls Club at 225 West 5th Avenue. Wanting to utilize the building to serve the community in greater ways Bethel leadership decided to establish a separate 501(C)(3) tax exempt community organization in 2014. City Life Center (CLC) is the fruit of that decision and was charged with serving the community through programs, services, and acts of compassion that exemplified and demonstrated faith in action.

No single organization has the ability to solve any major problem by itself. Collective impact is a powerful approach to cross-sector collaboration that is achieving measurable effects on major social issues. City Life Center engages with likeminded organizations and individuals of good will to bring about change.
