Compassionate Ministries

The mission statement of AFC is “to know Christ and to make Him known to others.” AFC has been a part of the Anderson community for 106 years and much of that time has been in the 46016 zip code. In today’s world, your zip code, even more than your genetic code, determines your potential for a healthy life. At AFC we have begun to dream of a holistically healthy life for the neighborhood surrounding our church and for all of the 46016 zip code and beyond. it is our intent to initiate good health for our neighborhood by partnering with neighbors of the church to:

  • Promote a safer neighborhood through cooperation with neighbors and the police and fire departments.
  • Build an outdoor playscape to provide a safe place for families to relax and have fun while building positive relationships with themselves and others.
  • Create functional space for education to provide for tutoring, mentoring, life skills training, parenting classes, and any other need that arises.
  • Seek opportunities for jobs that pay a living wage.
  • Seek affordable housing solutions.

Current ministries AFC provides for our community:

AFC Clothes Closet

The AFC Clothes Closet is a ministry that takes the no longer useful and turns it into the gratefully used clothing. We share gently used, in style, clothing with our neighbors. Everyone is invited to be part of this ministry and can select 2 outfits.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid-19 safety guidelines, our volunteer staff will take your call and arrange a time for you to come in for a private appointment. Please call 765.400.0453 to schedule an appointment.

Ezra's Essentials

Ezra’s Essentials was born out of a partnership with Dollar General. Ezra’s provides paper products, cleaning supplies, personal hygiene items and more to those in need in our community. We believe that by helping our neighbors with essential items, that it will help free up funds for them that they can then use for rent, food, utitlites, etc.
