MADISON COUNTY – Do you or a friend want to take steps to improve your quality of life? Classes with Christian Job Corps may be the answer.

Currently, Christian Job Corps is accepting applications from women for spring 2021 classes in Harvest at Asbury Church Harvest and in Huntsville at First Baptist Church.

“We offer not just ways to improve job skills to get a better job but Bible study and fellowship that encourages students to make positive changes in their lives,” Harvest Site Coordinator Susan D. Elder said. “We also provide a mentor to walk with the student for six months to help her with her specific needs.”

Deadline for applications for the next semester of classes is Jan. 25.

At First Baptist Church Huntsville, 600 Governors Drive, students with a high school diploma will meet Tuesday through Thursday, while students needing a GED will gather on Monday through Wednesday. To get an application in person, go to entrance 1 at the front left of the building.

Class hours in Huntsville are 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Orientation will be held on Feb 11. The first day of class will be Feb. 16.

At Asbury Church Harvest, 8089 Wall Triana, classes convene Tuesday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to noon. After orientation on Feb. 4, students will start classes on Feb. 9.
