A Message from the Founders of Inside-Out Ministries
After 11+ years of volunteering and fulfilling the mission of Inside-Out Ministries to provide basic needs of food, clothing and shelter for families in Madison while providing hope through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Larry and Deborah and other Board Members are “almost” retiring. We say almost because God has other plans. When no leadership from within came forward, the Board of Directors decided to simplify Inside-Out’s operations and retain Larry and Deborah in leadership.
The Monday-Friday operations and the care of the facility is being eliminated as of 12-15-18 and the ministry will continue to provide special benevolence care. Funding needs are reduced, yet remain focused on filling special needs for the following outreach events:
Community Thanksgiving Dinner – over 1000 meals provided in 2018 November
Elementary School Snacks – provided each semester as requested by Counselors As Needed
Teacher Appreciation (including Staff) at Madison City Schools July-August
Serving the City As One Spring
Disaster Relief – Will also include serving in other cities/states for needs during
tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, etc. As Needed
National Day of Prayer – first Thursday in May
WAY-FM Christmas Prayers December
If your church receives a request for assistance, direct them to 211. They have listings of agencies that can help throughout Alabama.
We are grateful to have had many opportunities to serve and certainly pray God’s provision for the true needs as well as heart and lifestyle changes that will lead to families being strengthened and children growing up knowing security and love. We are grateful to the Church Partners and individuals who have supported this All-Volunteer ministry and look forward to the plans and direction The Lord has for us All.
Inside-Out will retain its Phone Number, Website, Facebook and Twitter accounts which will include a message to advise connections to reach out to 211.
