Community Centers

Long Business Description:

Bethel Community Facility (BCF) was envisioned 40 years ago by Rev. John H. Rice, Sr., former Pastor of St. Bethel Baptist Church. After, years of watching the area he grew up in deteriorate, he decided that a local community center was needed to serve as a headquarters for community restoration. Without the help of bank loans, the center was constructed—brick-by-brick—slowly but surely. Often construction was halted for months until money was raised to buy more brick. Finally the building was completed. DEBT FREE.
