Come As You Are!
The Huntsville Inner City Church of Christ is located on Seminole Drive in Southwest Huntsville. This ministry touches the lives of hurting people every day, in a setting where the love of Christ is so desperately needed.
It was 1994, and Huntsville’s Inner City was growing. Mayfair’s Youth Ministry decided to take the gospel to the Inner City community of Council Court through the medium of outside activities for children. With that beginning, the Word of God has continued to be presented not only in Council Court but also Butler Terrace, Searcy Homes, LR Patton and most recently the Brookside Housing Communities.
Throughout the year young men and women are given opportunities to participate in Bible classes, summer camps, field trips, reading enhancement programs, cookouts and various craft classes. They have had the good fortune of meeting and sharing programs, classes and personal time with young Christians from the Madison County area as well as those from Tullahoma and Kingsport, TN and also Franklin, KY. This past summer the Monrovia Church of Christ youth group conducted a “Backyard VBS” in Butler Terrace that attracted several dozen young children. This past summers LIFT program attracted over 100 different youth, kindergarten thru 5th grade, over a 3 week period of time.
Programs like LIFT benefit these young children and the individuals who participate. The opportunities are tremendous and the need is great for the continuation of the Inner City bus ministry. Every Tuesday night as our 3 buses, loaded with volunteers from the area churches, make their way to the communities we serve, children will be benefiting from those who drive, welcome and teach in this program that started more than 10 years ago. This fall, with your help and prayers we will continue and broaden the services in the Lord�s name that we offer to the Huntsville Inner City. Please continue to pray for this outreach ministry and please give as you are so moved.
The Tuesday Bus Program remains the “bread and butter” of the ministry allowing us to establish relationships in the community. Through the children we gain access to the parents. In so doing, we reach the whole family for Christ.
WONDERFUL WEDNESDAYS FOR WOMEN
Each Wednesday morning is a special time for the ladies of the Inner City. Mayfair ladies join hands and hearts with these precious sisters in bible studay and prayer.
INNER CITY CHRISTIAN LEARNING CENTER
The Inner City Christian Learning Center is making a difference in our community. A diverse group of Huntsville volunteers is breaking the cycle of poverty by helping keep students in school. This ministry, operated through the Inner City Church of Christ, helps students learn the skills they need to advance in school instead of dropping out.
The LIFT Ministry surpassed everyone’s expectation, blessing the lives of everyone involved. For the children, a better understanding of God’s will, along with gained reading skills. Our campaign groups and interns gained hands-on experience in mission work. For the leadership a healthy understanding and appreciation of team work and God’s amazing grace. We averaged 75 students a day providing Bible study, classroom activity, lunch, reading program, puppets, skits and a weekly activity including skating, waterworks and a trip to Early Works and Early Works concluding with a cook-out.
The Connect3 Ministry was started in 2006 to compliment the LIFT Program. It is for the 6th -8th grades and is the last two weeks of the LIFT Program in the Summer and we had 20 participating our first year.
