Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
Matthew 25:31-40

Community Opportunities


Did you know, two out of three students who do not read proficiently by the end of 4th grade will end up either on welfare or in jail. However, children in poverty who read proficiently by the end of the third grade have an 89% graduation rate.
What can you do about it? You can impact the lives of children, teachers, and families and make a difference in our communities by helping us focus on second-grade reading ability. By becoming a volunteer and partnering with us, other churches, and Walker County public schools to help boost reading proficiency.  You do not need a background in education, all you need is a willing heart and the ability to work with a child on a basic sight-word list. We will provide the training.  To sign up for training, learn more at our website below:

Jubilee Prison Ministry

More than two million Americans are incarcerated. Combined with the other five million people on probation and parole, nearly seven million American adults are under the supervision of the corrections system. These men and women need a new start. They need a new direction. They need a Savior.  We happen to know an awesome Rabbi from Galilee who specializes in the business of transforming lives. As it happens, He loves prisoners.  At the Jubilee Weekend, we introduce incarcerated men and women to the One who can redeem their lives and give them lasting hope. Come and see miracles happen. Join the Jubilee, we are in need of faithful men to volunteer on the 'inside' of the Holliday Unit to disciple and evangelize and women on the 'outside' team to cook, prepare, and pray.


Our Church has formal relationships with excellent organizations around the world. There are groups that we support with monthly gifts and small teams of short-term volunteers. We'd love to see you pray, give, or go in support of these efforts. If you're interested, please let us know below or call our office at 936.295.2996.
