Have you ever needed to find answers about a local service or resource and not known where or how to find them? If your answer is yes, you are not alone. Many people have found themselves in that same predicament. Unfortunately, what you don't know can hurt you. For that reason, Proverbs 4:7 advises people to "get understanding." Basically, that's the inspiration for this forum. The Birmingham Community Hub has been created to help people find legitimate answers in a busy, fast-paced world. In a world where people are often bombarded with excess, this hub will hopefully allow it's users to trim the fat frequently associated with surfing the net and get right to the heart of matters with little distraction about fashion, gossip, or entertainment. Prayerfully, this will be an interactive forum where users can locate and exchange info in a faith-filled inspirational environment.

Help Us Fill Our Shipping Container Going to Tanzania

Show some Love for Tanzania by helping fill our shipping container

Tanzania is one of the places where we serve “off the mountain” through short term mission teams and financial support. Now we are offering another way you can support people in Tanzania.
We are shipping a 20 foot container to Tanzania in December and are asking you to help us fill it with 2 of their primary needs:
  1. Pastoral Books (commentaries, pastoral care books like Purpose Driven Church, theological books, etc.) These can be found at places like second hand bookstores (2nd & Charles, etc.), thrift stores, and garage sales. Please NO fiction books.
  2. Basic Medical Supplies (surgical gloves, clinical swabs, sponges, tongue depressors, splints, canes, vital sign monitoring devices, medical bandages, gauze, medical linens, etc.) Note: Supplies CANNOT have an expiration date.
The books will empower rural pastors who feel helpless because they are not able to afford formal training at Bible college. The medical supplies are vital to rural medical clinics who see people die each year through senseless deaths from easily treatable diseases.
Please bring all donations to the iServe booth near the main sanctuary entrance inside Mountaintop Community Church [click HERE for directions].
Contact Mari Beth Poor at maribeth.poor@mountaintopchurch.com with any questions.
