Thoughts on Alpha Women’s Resource Center

As I look around our nation sometime it is really hard to watch the direction we have turned as a nation. It is easy to just sit and watch as people we know and love find themselves in situations that seem to have no hope. Truly, this is not what God would have us to do as His people. He tells us in His word to help those that are in need. I am thankful that God had placed such a call on the heart of people in this community to step up and to be His hands and His feet.

I have been truly blessed to be a part of the ministry here at the Alpha Women’s Resource Center. I am thankful to the staff, all the volunteers, and the Board of Directors that dedicate their time and finances to reach out as God has called us all to do. I am also thankful for those in this great community both churches, businesses, individuals, and our Lord Jesus by which makes the ministry even possible. Thank you all. You have helped touch and change many people’s lives through the years. The apostle Paul said to Timothy in 2 Thessalonians,” Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfill all the good pleasure of His goodness, and the work of faith with power. That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you and you in Him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ”. This is the calling that God has given to us.

Please continue to pray for the ministry and ask God to continue to lie on our hearts each day what we need to do be doing that God would be glorified and that those that need help and encouragement would receive what they need.

Partnership with United Way

Good News! As an approved 2014-2015 partner agency of the United Way of Southwest Alabama (UWSWA), the Alpha Women’s Resource Center was recently notified that it will receive a total of $10,500 in specific program funding.

UWSWA recently changed its funding requirements and the Alpha Center was awarded $8,000 for its Medical Service Program and $2,500 for its Abstinence Education program in Clarke County. A local volunteer Community Impact Committee selected these programs for funding. This is a very competitive process with many deserving programs submitted for consideration and compounded by having a 3 to 1 ratio of requests to dollars the United Way had to invest.

The Alpha Women’s Resource Center would like to thank all those who contributed to the UWSWA campaign. We appreciate your support!
