Where We Serve
In August of 2014, Chicktime Dothan began serving the Wiregrass Children’s Home. We spent a year making wonderful and beautiful memories with the children and staff at WCH and will forever treasure our time spent there! In August of 2015, we moved the Chicktime Dothan party over to the Alabama Baptist Children’s Home and we could not be more blessed and thankful that these children have welcomed us into our lives!

ABCH Core Values:
CALLING | They believe God has called us to serve children and families. He will equip us for this ministry. (Romans 8:28-30; Ephesians 4:1; Ephesians 4:11-13; 2 Peter 2-3; Isaiah 1:17; Micah 6:8)
RELATIONSHIPS | They believe, through a right relationship with God, we will build and maintain healthy relationships with others. We value all human life, the God-ordained institution of marriage, and strong families. We affirm the virtues of faith, hope and love. (Matthew 25:35-36; John 15:12; 1 Corinthians 13:13; Luke 10:27; Galatians 5:14; James 1:27)
PRAYER | They believe, individually and together, we must prayerfully seek God’s direction in all matters. Prayer support for each other is essential. (2 Chronicles 7:14; 1 Thessalonians 5:17; Philippians 4:6; John 15:7)
TRUST | They believe we must trust God, who promises never to leave us. He will provide all of our ministry’s needs according to his riches in Christ Jesus. We will seek to develop trust with our ministry partners and those we serve. (Psalms 28:7; Proverbs 3:5-6; Philippians 4:19)
INTEGRITY | They believe in being honest, just, and fair. Integrity and character are more important than success and rewards. (Psalms 15:21; Proverbs 11:3; Psalms 25:21; James 1:1)
GROWTH | They believe that to be effective, we must improve in body, mind, and spirit. Our individual and corporate growth will result in excellent and innovative services.
