CSM is so excited about the upcoming Jones Valley Trail extension that will run behind the campus by the end of 2020.  This critical, long-anticipated trail project will connect downtown Birmingham to Avondale, picking up on 1st Avenue South/32nd Street South and tying into 41st Street South.  CSM is excited to participate in a project like this that will provide a more convenient and accessible path for many more residents and visitors to the Greater Birmingham area.

To prepare for the coming of the trail, CSM will complete many projects to beautify and improve our back decks, garden center, and construction area.  This will include tree planting, landscape installation, gate construction, and much more!  This is a big undertaking, but we are delighted to invite more people into the CSM campus with the opportunity to share what God is doing in Birmingham.

We’re thrilled to welcome our city into our backyard (As Tracy says, “Birmingham is coming to us now”), but we need your help to get us ready! With all of these projects going on, we’ll need support from our volunteers and partners around the community. Whether you can volunteer or write a check, we need your help! We’re always happy to get eager volunteers connected to a S.W.A.T. Team (Serving With Available Time/Talents).  And we have various options to make donating easy (check them out here)! Thank you in advance for you help in preparing us to serve our city as it comes right to our backyard.
