One Church Mission Center
The center is open every day from 3-6 pm and serves a variety of people, but the majority are homeless men. Each night, different organizations or churches serve dinner for up to 100 people who walk through the doors. On Sunday nights, they hold Bible study along with dinner.
 
The center houses a small kitchen, rooms of clothes for men, women and children, Logos Café and a living room, as well as, an administrative office. The newest addition to the center are the showers and laundry facilities. A commodity that is lacking among the homeless community is now a reality for the many who have used the Alabama River as their “shower” and “washing machine” for so long.
 
The center has provided the ministry an opportunity to host a place for social workers to meet with the homeless. A representative from Family Promise comes once a week as well as a representative from Veterans Affairs to aid the homeless in getting back on their feet.
 
"The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor..."
