The Church of Christ in Gardendale has been blessed by Lord to be able to support several efforts within our brotherhood. Some of the groups that we support are private, but here are the public groups that we support.
Cherokee Home for Children
The mission of Cherokee Home for Children is to engage children in education, community, and church-related activities to positively influence their lives. Preparing the children for the time where they leave Cherokee takes wholesome and dedicated people.
Since March, 1979, the home has been under the oversight of the elders of the Austin Avenue Church of Christ in Brownwood, Texas. The board of directors is made up of men from this congregation.
Foster's Home for Children
Since 1960, Foster’s Home for Children has demonstrated the ability to meet the needs of troubled children and families by providing residential group care, foster family care, and adoptions. Foster’s Home services, based on strong Christian values, are presented by our professional staff in an educational approach, teaching appropriate skills for interactive living. Foster’s Home operates on sound financial principles with very limited long-term debt. The day to day operations are supported by faithful individual donors and approximately 300 churches of Christ throughout Texas
