West Branch Area Religious Council (WBARC)

There has long been a strong ecumenical partnership in West Branch with other congregations in our continued efforts to overcome differences and focus on the needs of others in working with our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.  Some of the ways the ministries of WBARC include:  helping those in the community in need, assisting those travelling through the area in need, assisting with the Operation BackPack program through the West Branch School District, being involved with city officials and school counselors to understand needs in the community, and our annual Pulpit Exchange and hosting of Baccalaureate.  Faith communities working together in WBARC include: Bethany Lutheran Church (ELCA), West Branch Friends Church, West Branch Friends Meeting Conservative, West Branch United Methodist Church, Springdale United Methodist Church, and St. Bernadette’s Catholic Church.
