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

Eat your veggies!

The vegetable stand is up at the Community Garden and ready for harvest! Please help yourself to any veggies for your family on our awesome new stand! Maybe you have an abundance of veggies in your own personal garden? Share with the community by dropping off at the Community Garden vegetable stand located at 2439 Jackson Street. Let’s work together to make a difference!
