In 2016 eight local churches came together to create Whitesburg Area Christian Ministries: Banning Church of God, Ephesus Christian Church, New Hope Baptist Church, Mt. Avery Baptist Church, Whitesburg Baptist Church, Whitesburg Christian Church and Whitesburg United Methodist Church.
OUR VISION is to establish a Whitesburg Area Christian Ministries facility that would house the food pantry and offer other services such as clothing closet and pantry for other nonfood items that are not covered by food stamps. Establish a Handy-Man Committee to assist our senior citizens, in the community, with simple repairs. Work closely with Whitesburg Clinic to see what the needs are in the community.
The ministries would provide spiritual support and prayer to those in need.
