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.

If you attend an event, patronize an organization or secure employment with a company that you read about on

Birmingham Community Hub

PLEASE LET THEM KNOW THAT YOU HEARD ABOUT THEM HERE!

Competition for a one-act play


Entries must be submitted by Dec. 5. The competition, which is open to current residents of Birmingham, limits the plays to a 30-minute length. “We want them to be about Birmingham – [set in] the 99 neighborhoods or 23 communities,” she says. Douglas says there is no minimum age for submitting an entry and organizers are encouraging youths to write plays for the competition.
The top prize will be $250, and it is possible that second and third prizes also will be added if the contest draws enough entries. “We would love to have many, many, many,” she says.

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.

Our vision is for the poor, sick, and needy to experience the love and healing of Jesus Christ through our efforts to provide excellent, integrative health care.

In addition to primary medical care, we offer dental services, nutrition and fitness classes, one-on-one counseling, and spiritual support for our patients.  

We want every patient to know that he or she is created in the image of God the Father and that Jesus Christ died on the cross to save them from their sins and to give them eternal life (John 3:16). Our hope is that our patients will experience the transforming power of the Holy Spirit through a relationship with Jesus Christ and gain eternal life through Him.  

Mark 2:17 And when Jesus heard it, He said, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.”

What types of insurance will you accept?  Do you accept uninsured patients?
We accept Medicaid, Medicare, and most major insurance carriers.  Co-pay for insured patients is due at time of service.  If you are uninsured, we charge $40 for the initial visit and $20 for follow up appointments.  Lab and testing fees are an additional cost to the patient.
