Grades 1 thru 5

The Scouting journey begins in our Cub Scout Pack 3607. The Pack meets on Thursday evenings. Here the young scouts build on what they learn every year, completing projects alongside parents to a point where the parent simply offers support. They also work alongside the Boy Scout Troop 607 for many of their events, as well as their annual Pinewood Derby and other projects. Pack 3607 has been with Bethany Union for over 80 years.

Matthew 25 Clothing Shoppe

Clothes on Outdoor Rack

In response to our Lord's call to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and visit those in prison, we have joined forces with The TEECH Foundation to offer free, clean clothing to anyone who is in need. There is  a drop-off in the building for clean, wearable clothing, shoes, and coats for men, women, and children. Many of our guests have recently been freed from prison and only have the clothing that is on their backs. Bethany Union Church has over 1,000 souls coming in and out of our doors and it is great to be able to love them in this tangible way. No one should be cold in Chicago or America for that matter. For more information,

 Office Manager De'Shara Shells, CPC, RC can be reached at desharaclark@gmail.com or (312) 539-5263. 

Dynasty Personified

Original Logo.png

 The mission of Dynasty Personified is to give voice to marginalized women, who have otherwise been silenced, through intentional experiences that foster personal growth and professional development.

The world's depiction of a creation so dear, so fierce, so great and grand, yet as delicate and full of life as is a flower, while simultaneously enduring many years of pressure, as that of a diamond, is that of a woman. We are the foundation of many things and the center of others, which has no doubt made our world a remarkable piece of art, full of strength and love. We continue to evolve and must cultivate spaces to support and empower the greatness of who we are, pouring into our vessels as we do for those around us, daily. What a time for women to be alive and make our mark with wisdom and grace. We look forward to serving, building and blazing trails with countless women here at Dynasty Personified where health, wealth and riches belong. For more information check out our website at www.dynasty-personified.org, email us at info@dynastypersonified.org or call us at 312.899.6370
