In Madison County, For Life Ministries partners with:
Graces of Gurley
Huntsville Inner City Learning Center
Owens Cross Roads Elementary School
Families who are part of the Love One Madison County program can apply for educational scholarships to help cover the cost of educational resources for the adults or children in the family. The scholarships could help cover the cost of tutoring, after school programs, extra-curricular activities, job training, or college classes. The applications are submitted by the families quarterly to the ministry partner who then passes them on to the For Life Ministries’ Board for review and approval. The family must invest 10% of the funds needed, and all funds are sent directly to the business from which they are requesting the assistance, not given directly to the family.
You can participate in the ministry of For Life by writing notes of encouragement to the families that we serve. These cards will be given to them when they pick up their food box each month.
Sponsor a family with a monthly food box
Our ministry partners identify families for us who could use help in the form of a monthly food box. You can sponsor a family for $50 each month, which allows For Life Ministries to purchase a food box for the family full of protein-packed items to make solid meals for their family. The families come to a designated location once a month to pick up their food boxes and are prayed with, loved on, and encouraged. Our hope is that the sponsor would not only support the family through their monthly payment of $50, but would also pray for their family by name, write an encouraging note to them, or meet them face to face.
Volunteer at food box distribution
The families who are part of For Life Ministries’ Madison County program pick up their food box on the following Saturdays from 9-10am at Manna House, Lincoln Village, Madison County Elementary School, and Owens Cross Roads United Methodist Church. You can help box the food or pray with the families when they pick up their box.
The Food Box Distribution dates are:
January 25, February 22, March 28, April 25, May 23, June 27, July 25, August 22, September 26, October 24, November 21, December 19
Love One Madison County Events
Each year For Life Ministries hosts a Back to School and Christmas party for the families that we serve. These events are held at Willowbrook Baptist Church from 12-2pm. Lunch is served, the gospel is shared, and there are fun activities, games, and crafts provided. The Back to School party is on August 1, 2020 and December 5, 2020. Smaller events are also held for the families throughout the year. Individuals or businesses can sponsor one of these events by providing all of the necessary supplies.
If you would like to sponsor a local family, donate to the educational scholarship program, or assist with the Love One Madison County program please contact Jennifer Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the For Life Ministries office at 256-203-2997.
