Friends of the Thread
The Thread is an environmentally sensitive, non-motorized, multipurpose trail designed to increase the health and wellness of the community through providing a safe environment in LaGrange, Georgia for fitness, recreation, transportation and special events. Plans for The Thread Master Plan were unanimously adopted by the City of LaGrange on September 27, 2016, with construction slated to start in March, 2017 on the “model mile” at Granger Park and a goal to complete the first 13 miles by the end of 2022. Currently, The Thread has a total 29 miles of trails planned.
AND IN THAT MOMENT, PEDAL FORWARD WAS BORN.
Alabama Rural Ministry
Transformed rural communities with sustainable homes, strong families, and strategic community partnerships for the glory of God.
We are discovering, developing, and deploying spiritual leaders who, as disciples of Jesus Christ, minister with rural and under-resourced communities to create sustainable homes, strengthen families, and build strategic community partnerships for the glory of God.
We believe Christ’s love must be expressed in action to people in need. ARM is a hands on ministry; responding to people through Christian love with an emphasis in home repair and children’s ministry-it’s all about building the family!
Alabama Rural Ministry coordinates home repair efforts and children’s day camps in rural areas of Alabama. We are interdenominational but are connected to the United Methodist Church. All denominations are welcome to come and serve!
- Compassionate servant leaders
