Following is a some of our current outreach ministries…

Arkansas Rice Depot — Disaster strikes without warning. The Arkansas Rice Depot provides relief in many ways and they rely on volunteer efforts to supply their stores. We are pleased to lend a hand when the need arises.

NPMC ICU Lunch Program — This outreach program of our church offers a listening ear, a friendly smile and genuine caring to the family members in the ICU waiting room at National Park Medical Center in Hot Springs.  A simple lunch is also provided as a gift to those waiting. This has been a very rewarding experience for the people serving as well as those served.

Jackson House — Is a facility in Hot Springs that provides food and clothing to the homeless and indigent. Many families cannot earn enough to care for their families and Jackson House has been helping them for years. We are always happy to help with food drives and by providing volunteer staff.

Thanksgiving & Christmas Baskets — We annually put together food baskets for families in our area that are in need. Most of us are blessed with an abundance of resources and we want to share them during the holiday seasons. It is a real blessing to give to those who really appreciate our gifts.

Samaritan Ministries — Samaritan Ministries is a men’s shelter in the greater Hot Springs area that welcomes our support. We provide support through volunteer efforts as well as by sponsoring clothing drives and relief efforts.
