We Care About Our Community!

Several years ago we ask ourselves the question, “if Madison Hills ceased to exist, would it make any difference in our community?”  We didn’t like the answer.  So, we began to partner with those making a difference in our community.  If you care about touching those who need God’s love and special touch, Madison Hills is for you.  Here are the ministries we have in place and those we support in our community. 
Grace Now
Grace Now is a food pantry and clothes closet for those who have fallen through the cracks.  They are open on Monday and Thursday evenings and serve thousands of clients every year. We bring donations every week and our members volunteer on Mondays and Thursdays.  We are very proud to support and partner with Grace Now! 
 
Kidz Konnection reaches out to children who have limited opportunities to enjoy life like most children do.  They meet once a month and have a great time.  Madison Hills also provides a special meal the second Sunday in December for all the children and parents and we provide gifts and a special Christmas program for the kids.  
 
We partnered with  Habitat for Humanity this year and helped build our first house while raising $4000 to pay for the house so that the owners could move in mortgage free.  The joy of helping someone get back on their feet was remarkable.  We plan to do it again!  Join us!  
 
“In Times Like These” is our “dollar” ministry.  Every one dollar bill given in the offering is set aside to help those who are going through a temporary financial setback.  Recipients must be referred to us by a member or trusted person.  We have a team the vets each request and then makes a recommendation.   This ministry has given over $40,000 dollars in help to people in our community.  We know that it has saved people’s homes, cars, jobs and marriages!  
 
Hannah’s Care Packages was created by one of our members, Jessica Ball.  It is an amazing ministry that reaches families in crisis.  Most of us don’t see the families that have chronically and persistently ill.  Families where the child requires constant care.   Often these families have crises.   When that happens the immediately go the hospital.  They have to do it without any preparation.   Hannah’s Care Packages fills the gap.  They deliver packages with all the things they need and left behind so that the families and caretakers are provided for.  This ministry has expanded to many states and cities.  
 
We have supported and raised tens of thousands of dollars over the past tens year for Relay for Life. Cancer is a devastating disease.  We are proud to support the effort to cure this terrible disease.  
 
 
 
On the second Sunday of December for the past ten years we have hosted The Christmas Meal. We invite all the children and parents of Kidz Konnection, feed them a wonderful meal, have Christmas presents and Santa Claus.  On that same night we go to Madison Towers, Willis Manor, and the Career Development center and feed every person there.  We serve almost 500 people and bring the hope of the birth of Christ to all of them. It may be the best Sunday of the Year!
