Local Missions

Mercy House and M.A.P.

The many programs of MAP (Ministry About People) come together to create pathways of hope that redirect lives and rebuild community in Montgomery, Alabama. From a day shelter for the homeless, GED help and financial classes, after school and summer enrichment programs, to a food pantry and clothes closet, Mercy House and MAP really believe it takes a community working together to help those in need.

Mercy House – A day shelter at 2412 Council Street providing access to food, clothing, shower facilities, and laundry washing. We currently serve 500 meals a day through this day shelter, as well.

It is also the temporary location for the Montgomery branch of the Salvation Army, and a satellite location for Trenholm State Community College providing classes for GED and High School Diplomas.

Choose Water

Choose Water (formerly Water 282) is a non-profit that exists to connect organizations, such as churches, civic clubs, schools, or even individuals, with villages in Africa in need of clean water. We have seen first-hand how bad the water crisis really is in these villages, and how desperately the villagers need clean, safe water near their village.
