An Historic Church Meeting Today’s Needs
Old Brick Presbyterian Church, 260 Mount Pleasant Road, Muscle Shoals, was organized in 1820 and is one of the oldest churches in the state. When the original wood frame building burned, a brick structure was erected in its place. That building was dedicated in 1828, 180 years ago this year, and has been used continuously used for worship ever since, except during the Civil War years. The current members of Old Brick take great pride in their historic past and work diligently to preserve this National Historic Landmark and the records and mementos of its past.
But Christ did not call the church to be a museum. So, while Old Brick maintains its historic tradition, it is also committed to meeting today’s needs. Many today feel a need for deeper spirituality, a more vital and real experience with God. Old Brick, too, seeks to foster an ever closer relationship with God in which we learn to live and love more and more like Jesus.
Many today also want preaching and teaching that makes the Bible a living Word from God that speaks to today’s anxieties and challenges. Old Brick makes every effort to provide that kind of biblical preaching and teaching.
Old Brick’s minister is Rev. Carl Malm. Rev. Malm also has a Huntsville-based ministry, the Center for Loss, Grief, and Change which offers grief consultations and educational programs about grief and spiritual care. Rev. Malm feels his special calling is to help those hurting from unwanted change and to relate biblical spirituality to those who hurt. He has twenty years experience as a hospice and healthcare chaplain and over twenty years experience teaching at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. His classes and workshops are much in demand.
Whether you are just interested in seeing our historic and well-preserved building or whether you are looking for a faith experience that meets your needs, you are always welcome to be our guest at Old Brick Presbyterian Church.
