At Faith United Methodist Church
The Foundry Christian Community Center
With the mission to develop leaders among the children and young people of the West End of Bowling Green through education, health and fitness, and spiritual development. The Foundry is committed to joining our neighbors in doing whatever it takes, for as long as it takes, to bring about spiritual and community transformation. As United Methodists we stand in a theological tradition that affirms a life-giving faith and strong social engagement. As Methodists we believe our relationship to God calls us to seek the good of our neighbor in humble service. In 2010, in the spirit of John Wesley, the Bowling Green District of the United Methodist Church felt the call to address the poverty in the West End of Bowling Green. That same year, the District purchased the former Boys and Girls Club, installed a Board of Directors, and the Foundry Christian Community Center was born in the heart of this area of great need in our community. The Foundry of today carries on the rich tradition of John Wesley’s original Foundry.

Western Kentucky University Wesley Foundation
The Wesley is a United Methodist campus ministry located on WKU’s campus (a block down from Cherry Hall). While we are a United Methodist ministry, not all of our students are United Methodist. Some of them aren’t sure what denominational affiliation they want to take (if any!) and we’re OK with that.

Boy Scouts Troop 555
Troop 555 has a long and active history, beginning in 1994 with our founding members coming from Cub Scout Pack 505 and Boy Scout Troop 710. Our program is outdoor oriented with at least one activity per month, and occasionally a day activity.
The Troop is service oriented and we routinely assist in service projects for a family, church or the community. We assist with food drives for various organizations throughout the Bowling Green area, and participate in Flag retirement ceremonies.
We participate in a Summer Camp, offered by the BSA at Boxwell Scout Reservation, in Gallatin, Tennessee, one of the best summer camps in the nation. Troop 555’s program tries to include a long trip once a year, if the boys are interested, which consists of a long term camping trip. Notably we have traveled to Gettysburg, Washington DC, canoed the Current River, and White Water Rafted in West Virginia also an overnight adventure on the USS Alabama to mention a few.
