Last Thursday, we were blessed to host a group from Lakeshore Church in Dallas who are in town working with the Huntsville Dream Center. Extra hands accomplish much and it’s very encouraging for our faithful Old Guys to see others being involved.
On Saturday, we had a chilly start but a beautiful work day at Lincoln. 35-40 people showed up from multiple churches to join in the fun. Our tasks included demolition & clean up, exterior painting, installing house wrap, clearing & securing some rotten porches to provide safe work sites and prepping a house to have cabinets & vanities installed on Monday! Also some of the kids painted scripture rocks at the school.
All of this by 11:15 – then, COTH set up a monster grill in front of the school and provided lunch for volunteers, residents and people who just showed up. We had one sweet older lady from the community who joined us. A volunteer was able to share the love of Christ with this woman & pray with her. Thankful tears were shed.
May He receive the glory & our praise for being able to be a part of His work. Come join us any Saturday & watch how the Lord shows up!
We will be removing old chimneys from our houses and therefore will have lots of bricks to give away. If you are interested in beautiful vintage bricks and willing to take some, please let us know! We will be happy to help you load them up!

Lincoln Village Ministry | Huntsville AL
Just a few miles from the most expensive houses in the inner city of Huntsville were men, women, and children surviving without the basic necessities. No running water or electricity. Plumbing didn’t work and floors were rotted from leaking pipes. Children had broken toys and went to bed hungry. A man with a heart for this inner city neighborhood stepped into the home of a little girl and her mother. That visit opened the man’s eyes and eventually a community’s eyes to the great need in their midst: the need for Christ.
Lincoln Village Ministries is the product of one man’s call to action. The call has spread all over the city of Huntsville to pour out the hope and love of Jesus Christ into the Lincoln community.
