Reducing Barriers
to Success

Through Education and Empowerment

The Community Center @ AFC is an outreach ministry of the people of Anderson First Church of the Nazarene, who want to make a difference in Madison County.

We’ve canvassed the area we call “Our GRID” (from Brown to Main Street, and from 23rd to 29th Street), where we want to be actively serving the community, sharing hope, bridging gaps, and building a better Anderson.

You are always welcome at the Community Center, where you can find a safe place, caring community, essential items, and various resources for learning opportunities, programs, services, and more.

5 Core Pillars

Upcoming events!

Thank You, Students from A.P.A!

We send out a HUGE thank you to the students from A.P.A. who blessed The Community Center and our neighborhood with their service! When we work together, BIG things can happen!

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony!

Milestones in life don’t come often, but when they do they are unforgettable and often spark a movement that marks the beginning of something incredible! Today was a milestone. The beginning of something life, city, and county changing! Check out the picture from our ribbon cutting.  We will be fully functional to the community on September 19! Thank you to all who have supported, served, given, and been a part of bringing this vision to fruition!
This is changing everything… come and join the journey!
