Gracious serving

Our vision is that College Hills will reflect the heart of Jesus as we respond with grace to the broken and hurting. Because we have experienced the grace of God we seek to help and bless people who are often overlooked and ignored.


Below are some of the serving ministries that show the grace of God in practical ways in the community. 


Manning COmpassion Center

Each Monday from 9 -11 AM the Manning Compassion Center at College Hills assists local families with groceries.

 

The Compassion Center asks each Sunday morning adult class to donate specific items for the pantry each month. And you are welcome to bring items at any time -  when you find a great sale, have extra coupons, or just want to add a few items to your grocery cart to give to those in need.  Monetary donations are also welcomed.


General Food Pantry Needs:  Deodorant, Shampoo, Toothpaste, Toothbrush, Bath Soap, Toilet Paper, Macaroni & Cheese, Crackers, Rice, Canned Chicken, Tuna, Chicken Noodle Soup, Spaghetti, Spaghetti Sauce, Spaghetti O’s, Canned Fruit, Applesauce, Peanut Butter, Grape Jelly, Oatmeal, Cereal, Canned Potatoes, Green Beans, Peas, Corn, Mixed Vegetables, Pork & Beans, Canned Carrots, Dish Detergent, and Laundry Detergent.

 

"These all look to you to give them their food at the proper time. 
When you give it to them, they gather it up; 
when you open your hand they are satisfied with good things."

Psalm 104: 27-28

pregnancy help center

Finding out about an unexpected pregnancy can be a confusing and frightening experience. You may not know who you can confide in or where you can go for help.  You need to know that you have somewhere to turn, someone who cares.


At the Pregnancy Help Center, we listen, we understand, and we can help.  We offer needed supplies free of charge and other assistance you may need during this difficult time.

Regular weekly hours are
Wednesday 6:30-7:30 PM

To schedule an appointment, call the College Hills Church office at 615-444-9502.


Also, each Spring and Fall, College Hills hosts a series of four "Great Young Moms in the Making" classes for expecting moms. Each class includes dinner, and the final class celebrates with a Baby Shower. 

Compassionate hands

Wilson County has a homeless problem, and College Hills works with other local churches to make a difference by opening winter shelters in church buildings.

 

In 2012, a group of Christians set out to make sure nobody froze to death in Wilson County. God blessed that effort and along the way he broke down walls and built surprising friendships. College Hills members were part of the initial discussions and in 2018 we sent one of our staff members, John Grant, to serve as the first Executive Director of the ministry.
