Jesus said that the greatest commandment was to love God with all your heart; and the second greatest is to love your neighbor as yourself. At Gardendale Presbyterian Church, we love our neighbor in a variety of ways:
Our mantra has become: We focus on five – because anybody can handle a handful. Here are our five:
The Presbyterian Home for Children
The proceeds from our annual bazaar, held on the Saturday one week before Mother’s Day, go to The Presbyterian Children’s Home and other ministries.
The Firehouse Shelter
We prepare and serve an evening meal to the men at the Firehouse on the second Sunday of the odd months (January, March, May, July, September, and November).
For First Light, we collect and contribute every day items that the ladies and children need (cough drops, deodorant, grape juice, snacks, etc.)
Presbyterian Manor Apartments
926 Overton Ave, Tarrant City, AL 35217
Presbyterian Manor Apartments is a senior low income housing apartment subsidized by the federal governments HUD (Housing and Urban Development Division). Our ministry at the Manor is one of food and fellowship. We bring meals, have cookouts, sing carols at Christmas and spend time with the folks who live there; showing the love of Christ to our neighbors.
