CLOTHES CLOSET UPDATE
As of Jan 1, 2017 we will no longer be accepting donations for the clothes closet at Church of the Reconciler. While we know this is a need for some in our community, there are other organizations who do a much better job of meeting that need (we'd be happy to share that list if you call the office: 205-324-6402).
We will continue accepting NEW underwear, socks, and new winter items when the weather turns cold. Please see our donations page for the latest updated list of needs.
VESTAVIA HILLS UMC: AN EXAMPLE IN SERVANT LEADERSHIP
First and foremost, we love ALL of our church partners. We could not keep our doors open every day if it weren't for their support.
But we did want to brag on one group who has consistently shown what servant leadership means, as well as be a blessing to us and our community.
A group from Vestavia Hills UMC decided to tackle several projects at Reconciler around the building: fixing lights, air conditioners, and make some cosmetic improvements. Usually some of these repairs aren't as high on the priority list because money is tight.
Our friends brought in specialists for repair advice, donated money and time to collect supplies, and spent their days off working (and continue to work) to make Reconciler a little nicer. Thank you to our friends for improving our community.
New Look on 2nd Ave
You may notice a new look on the 2nd Ave N side of our building. Volunteers with Regions Bank and Redemptive Cycles created a beautiful mural to celebrate our diversity, and our work.
