LOCAL OUTREACH

This is a sample of our commitment to show Christ’s love to our neighbors.

The  Landing                          

The Landing is a life-changing journey for teenagers in middle and high school.  This program is based on the Beatitudes where Jesus laid out principles for happiness.  It allows teenagers to learn how to live their life in a healthy, God-honoring way.  The Landing tackles real life issues.  Teenagers are given a safe environment to discuss topics and ask questions.  They learn to lean on Jesus Christ to help them overcome life’s challenges.  The Landing curriculum follows the Celebrate Recovery model.

Room in the Inn

This is a group of churches that provide a safe shelter, a meal, overnight lodging, and other amenities to those in our communities that are without permanent housing.  We support this ministry with our prayers, we volunteer in different service capacities, provide food when we can, and have the privilege of hosting our neighbors as they stay with us during the day at the Genesis Ministry Center.  This ministry is in operation from the last weekend in November through the last weekend in March.

Taking it to the Streets

Becoming the hands and feet of Jesus, several Saturdays a year volunteers go into the community to show Christ’s love by meeting the needs of our neighbors.  We have painted city parks, cleaned and landscaped around assisted living centers, helped the homebound with yard maintenance, and so much more.  It is always an event where we are blessed more than those we help!

Community Thanksgiving Meal

For several years we have prepared a Thanksgiving Meal for those in our community.  We host guests in our Family Life Center, and deliver to those who cannot join us.  In 2014, over 1,500 meals were served on Thanksgiving Day to those with need.

A Night in Bethlehem

On a Friday night in December, in conjunction with Guntersville Downtown Merchants festival, we set up a scene from Bethlehem in our parking lot.  More than 800 visitors come see sights and hear sounds of what it may have been like at the time of Jesus’ birth.  After visiting the merchant stalls, and seeing the stable, guests are offered the chance to take communion, and talk with a pastor.
