Central Church of Christ and Tide 4 Christ know about disasters—our facilities were completely destroyed by the Tuscaloosa tornado of April 27, 2011. The incredible generosity and kindness of those in our community and around the country inspired us to be committed to supporting those who have suffered similar misfortunes. With the support of Central, Tide 4 Christ has purchased a trailer and crucial supplies that allow us to travel around the southeast to work after natural disasters. In the past few years Tide 4 Christ has spent time working after disasters in La Place, LA; Hattiesburg, MS; Tupelo, MS; Athens, AL; and at home in Tuscaloosa. Our group stands ready to support those in need whenever the need arises.
Service & Missions
Tide 4 Christ is dedicated to serving others. Throughout the year, a variety of service project opportunities are offered that care for our community, support our sponsoring congregation, and reach out to the campus of The University of Alabama. Students have the opportunity to tutor elementary school children, assist with Central events, teach Sunday school classes, visit shut-ins, build wheelchair ramps, and advertise the group to their classmates. In the past few years many members of Tide 4 Christ have traveled with Central mission groups to Panamá and Perú on extended mission trips, as well. Every year, students in Tide for Christ have the opportunity to grow closer to one another and the Lord through service to others in the church, in the community, and around the world.
