Black Mountain Home for Children

The folks at Marshall Presbyterian Church are committed to the ministry of the Black Mountain Home for Children, formerly called the Presbyterian Home for Children.   

Every fall the children are welcomed for a weekend at Glory Ridge where we share meals and are blessed by their special music at Marshall Presbyterian Church on Sunday.   This fall they spent their Saturday helping a family with a severely handicapped child fix up their home. 

Marshall Presbyterian folks send birthday cards to the children with gift certificates to Walmart and put together a "home-grown, homemade" basket to be auctioned at the Home's Fall Festival.  

A special offering for the Home is taken up the Sundays before and after Thanksgiving .
