A Fifth Ward Coalition of Churches is comprised of Fifth Ward Area churches of various denominations that worship together and seeks to serve the community by keeping abreast of community concerns and providing a helping hand during times of need. The Coalition is known for two annual worship experiences --- New Year’s Eve Watch Service and Summer Revival. These worship opportunities promote unity among neighboring Pastors and congregations and spark ministry opportunities to the Fifth Ward community.
In addition to the worship opportunites offered by The Coalition, an Educational Task Force was formed in collaboration with others to identify key education problems in the Fifth Ward with the aim of making recommendations on how to improve these conditions and to commit as a community to partner with the school system to close educational gaps.
