A big thanks to one of our new ambassadors, Adrian Hargrove of Affinity Recruiting, LLC, who organized a group of volunteers to come and help us out at one of our Lincoln North homes that is nearing completion. Some of them were returning friends of LVM and some were experiencing the neighborhood for the first time.
Thanks also to some families from 1st Baptist of Huntsville who spent a Saturday morning working in Lincoln. Cleaning, landscaping & assisting a resident — their energy was put to good use & greatly appreciated. Another church group from St. Andrews came Labor Day weekend. So very thoughtful of them to come to labor at Lincoln!
We also appreciate our McMullen Cove families that returned to work in our front flower beds. Our front entrance looks great!
We are grateful for these and all of our volunteers! If you would like to come help with landscaping or work on a house, please contact our volunteer coordinator: for more information. We look
forward to meeting you!
Thanks to the generous grant received from Kiwanis Club of Huntsville & the persistence of our faithful Old Guys, the Little Linc Playground extension is almost complete. Thanks to ALL who played a role in this project! We are ready for our students!
SOARING LIKE AN EAGLE
Thanks so much to Carter Pollock & his friends, family and Scout troop! Carter chose to support Lincoln Village
for his Eagle Scout Project. This is a major undertaking & a big accomplishment for this young man. Congratulations!
With the Covid issues we’re facing, Carter had to be very creative in the ways he would be able to make an impact.
Off site – he & his friends – created items to be used in the expanded playground area of the Little Linc pre-school, and created some work benches & planning tables to be used in the renovation process of Lincoln North.
Thanks again to all involved.
We are so excited to have the Little Linc students starting back.
They are going to have so much fun on their expanded playground. With water tables, a basketball hoop, a tricycle track & so much more —
The sounds of childhood joy will soon be filling the campus.
Thanks so much to everyone who played a part in the playground
A few pics from our Saturday, August 1 work day crew. The group of ladies are neighbors from McMullen Cove who just wanted to help out, and did a great job getting the front beds cleaned up for LA to start back to school. They enjoyed it so much, they have signed up to come back in September and October to tend the front beds & the butterfly garden!
The family pictured also helped out that day, removing weeds and debris from the butterfly garden. They are the Fullers, and the dad is a teacher at Whitesburg Academy. He brought a group of students early this year and his family wanted to come back and help.
We also had a sweet former student of Lyle’s here that day, but she had to leave before we got the picture…
Please sign up for Adopt a Lincoln Village Garden/Yard!
We wanted to let you know about some new opportunities to volunteer at LVM, while still social distancing safely. As you know, we have a large neighborhood, complete with residences, a K-8 school & a 3/4yr preschool that could use some help with landscaping. We would love to have each garden area or section of lawns touched on once a week by various volunteers. This could be an opportunity for a community/life/small group to take care of an area once a month, twice a month or even weekly. Your group can sign-up to “adopt” that specific area and keep it looking nice. This can be a long or short term commitment. Thank you in advance!

We are excited about continued progress being made at our Levert Street properties in Lincoln North.
The walls in this 3-plex are now blown completely full of insulation and we are ready to get the drywall hung. The insulation process is of great importance, in that it helps create as energy efficient a property as possible in these homes that have not previously had insulation. When drywall is installed in one of Lincoln’s renovations it takes on a much more “finished” look.
While there is still a lot to be done – we’re getting closer & closer to providing new housing & welcoming new people to the Lincoln family.
Next steps will be priming, painting, and cabinets… getting closer! Please be praying for the families who will soon be joining the Lincoln family!
Thanks to the people who jumped on board this week, along with Blake from Gifted Global, out of Georgia.
Their work & their donation of tools are greatly appreciated & a great encouragement to our staff!
The possibility of having a community-wide Christian revival has been faithfully prayed about for several years. This particular event, Gathering 2020, has been prayed about diligently for the last couple of years. With this much prayer coverage with our Lord and after careful consideration, the leadership team discussed and confirmed at today’s monthly Gathering 2020 meeting that our August event at the VBC will be postponed to a future date.
Thank you to these faithful volunteers! In this group we have one friend who was recently introduced to Lincoln and has now been here three Saturdays in a row. Two friends who previously worked at Learning Lab and who have found a new way to serve. Also joining them was a group from Summit Crossing Church. We are so thankful for each of you!
As we came to the close of our unconventional end-of-school year, we came up with a plan to make craft kits for the students, as a gift to get their summer started. We asked for donations of fun items that the kids could use creatively as they were social distancing. The response was overwhelming! We received so many sweet and thoughtful items from our volunteers and friends of the ministry, ensuring that each child had a special gift. Thank you so much for your generosity and for blessing our families in this way! We are so thankful for each of you. ~Phillipians 1:3
“My thoughts on Lincoln begin on a Sunday afternoon years ago when my wife passed me the Sunday paper in which there was an article entitled “Opening Doors”. It was a description of what was beginning at Lincoln Mill. She said that I should look into this… I did and have not looked back.”
