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.

The Smith Scholarship Foundation is designed to fund college
scholarships for deserving students throughout Alabama. The foundation
was created by Mignon C. Smith in honor of her parents. Her father, J.
Craig Smith, was President and CEO of Avondale Mills, that was a
hallmark of the textile industry. Mr. Smith was an innovative leader who
put employee scholarships in place and privately funded the education
of several employees' children. Now, by having established The J. Craig
and Page T. Smith Scholarship Foundation, his daughter is continuing
the family tradition of encouraging and inspiring others to learn.

appeals for aid that you get by phone or mail, by e-mail, on websites,
or even in person, may not be on the up-and-up. Unfortunately,

organizers are encouraging youths to write plays for the competition. The top prize will be $250, and it is possible that second and third

love to have many, many, many,” she says.
Show some Love for Tanzania by helping fill our shipping container
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:
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.
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.
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].
