  • For 2024 we will have a special mission offering. The 2nd Sunday of each month we will highlight one of our mission areas and ask everyone to give an extra $5 to be used in support of that specific need.
    On the day of collection we will share information about the mission area, a practical need we hope to meet with our gift, and one specific area of service with which we can help. The following month we will celebrate how the money was utilized and the service we provided; then we will introduce the mission emphasis for that month.
    Special offering envelopes will be available for your $5 donation, as well as a digital link
    • June: Hope House
    • May: In May we raised $1,100.00 to purchase bicycles for Christmas Emporium.
    • April: Desired Haven Family Care. In April we collected $3,020.00 for Desired Haven.
    • March: Helping Neighbors Food Pantry. In March we collected $4,190.00 for the Helping Neighbors Food Pantry. These $5 donations really do add up and make a big difference for these programs. To volunteer call (870) 935-7298. They are open M, T, TH 10 am -2 pm & 5-7 pm the first Tuesday of the month. 
    • February: ASU BCM. In February we collected $3,500 to help send students on their Chicago spring break mission trip and committed to pray for the students while they were serving. Thank you for partnering with the BCM in prayer as well as financially.
