Collinsville Teaches the Importance of Community
Collinsville Teaches the Importance of Community

When I was first informed that my summer as part of Living Democracy would be in Collinsville, Alabama, I was excited and nervous. My time in Collinsville this summer has been one of new experiences, learning hard lessons, and growing as a member of civic society. I have learned what it means to contribute as a member of a community.

The Elba Church of Christ has a great impact on the members of its community. From worship services every Sunday to providing food for those in need, this Elba church is a great place to get involved. Every Monday and Thursday, the church hosts food banks.

On one particularly slow day at the library, my friend and library employee Alexus started talking about what there is to do for fun around the area. She explained that there are many local spots that not everyone knows about. This sparked an idea for a weekend trip to visit all of these “locals only” spots.

My Experience with Cowboy Church
My Experience with Cowboy Church

The other day as I was driving down the road in Henagar, a town located near Collinsville, I passed an interesting sign with faded wooden letters that invited, “Come join us for cowboy church! Every Sunday at 10.” The next Sunday, I decided to drive up the dirt road to a little barn in the country to see what this was all about.
