The Care House
Red Stuff Soup
The Care House is a community based outreach center that is located adjacent to First Presbyterian.  Many local churches support the Care House financially and with donations.  The Care House is always in need of volunteers for various projects.  Please call 256 249-8289 for more information.​
The Red Stuff Soup project is a relatively new ministry.  Genesis 25:29-30 shows Jacob cooking a stew. When his brother Esau smells it, he says, "Give me some of that red stuff, for I am famished."  Two types of volunteers are needed for this:  soup makers and soup takers.  When someone falls ill, or someone needs a meal, the store of soup will be used to meet their need.
Visitation Committee
Aluminum tabs
The Visitation Committee responds to the needs of members who are home-bound or confined to various medical facilities.  Volunteers share the ministry of presence and fellowship with these members--offering prayer, providing support, and sharing the love of Christ.​

Aluminum tabs from soda cans are collected by church members. It takes a while to fill up the big cannister, but when its ready, a member delivers the tabs to our local Civitan organization. The Civitans, in return, ensure delivery to the Ronald McDonald House in Birmingham. The RMH is committed to enhancing the lives of children and their families, with a primary emphasis on facilitating access to pediatric health care for residents of Alabama and adjacent states.
Remember to save your tabs and bring them to church!

Caregiver Support Group, hosted by the Coosa Valley Senior Behavioral Health Center.  A support group for caregivers of loved ones with dementia and/or depression.  This group meets the first Monday of every month at 6pm in the TCU Family Room on teh 2nd Floor of Coosa Valley Medical Center.  (If a holiday happens to fall on the first Monday, then the meeting is moved to the second Monday.)  Refreshments are provided for free and all ages are invited to attend.  Different topics are discussed each month, all focused toward giving caregivers helpful information and a network of friends who face many of the same challenges.

More ministries to come!  If you have an idea for a way this church can respond to the needs of this community, see the Pastor or an Ruling Elder currently on session.
