We believe in giving to others and supporting brighter futures. Currently, Minutes Matter is very involved with Lincoln Village ministry and specifically Lincoln Academy. Every month, we give a percentage of our sales help sponsor this wonderful ministry. We hope you take a moment to see the wonderful works taking place domestically in Huntsville, Alabama.
Lincoln Village Ministry
The ministry began providing a public school, Lincoln Elementary, with financial and personnel support, as well as, a tutoring program. However, it didn’t take long before realizing the need to expand the vision past the educational needs. As a result of seeing unhealthy living conditions, the Lincoln Village Preservation Corporation was formed to purchase homes in order to renovate and restore safe living conditions to low-income families. As the ministry grew, blessings continued to pour in allowing access to medical, dental, legal, clothing and nutritional support. The beginning roots of the ministry, Lincoln Elementary, was closed in 2010 by Huntsville City Schools. Two years later, the Lincoln Village Ministry was able to purchase the building which has since become Lincoln Academy. The ministry continues to expand to touch the lives of God’s people.
Lincoln Village Ministry offers affordable housing for low income families and focuses on providing homes for single mothers and children. This allows families to reside in safe living conditions, provides stability for the children, and helps the mother gain confidence that she can provide for her children. Several Lincoln Village staff and the families in the neighborhood live side by side to provide a well rounded support system.
Located in Huntsville, Alabama, Lincoln Academy is a Christian learning community of academic excellence which serves K-8 grades students who are zoned to public Title I schools. It is their commitment to ensure deep academic content knowledge, critical thinking skills, and Christian character building to have students prepared for high school and college.
Lincoln Village Ministry partners with the Heals Clinic and private physicians to provide medical, dental, and visual care for the families in our community. You can often find the staff running children to doctor appointments. It is important to address each individual need of the children living in our community including helping them obtain the medical treatment so that they can live a full and productive life.
Lincoln Village Ministry partners with others in the community to provide clothing and nutritional support. Each child who attends Lincoln Academy receives three meals a day and a bag of blessings to take home for the weekend. As you well know, children can not retain classroom instruction well if their physical needs are not met. Therefore, the ministry makes sure each child receives a nutritious meal so that their education will not be impeded.
After School Care
The Linc provides an after school program for the children who attend Lincoln Academy. During this time the children study the bible in a small group format, they participate in sports activities such as basketball and cheerleading, they are exposed to new skills such as art and music, and each child receives a personal mentor who comes to play games or read with them. Of course, the night would not be complete without dinner and dessert.
The heart and soul of this ministry revolves around telling others the good news about Jesus Christ. Not only do the children participate in daily Bible studies but a community church, The Village Church, has also been established. Everything that flows from Lincoln Village Ministry provides opportunities to live out the gospel, serve neighbors, and be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ.
