OPEN ARMS FOOD PANTRY
Pile your troubles on God’s shoulders—
he’ll carry your load, he’ll help you out.
He’ll never let good people
topple into ruin.
Mission Statement: The Open Arms Food Pantry reaches out to the community providing food, spiritual direction and a place to feel welcome.
"You are valuable because you exist. Not because of what you do or what you have done, but simply because you are." Max Lucado
Open Arms Food Pantry began in 2013 at FUMC, Hot Springs to help those who are in need of assistance and direction. Open Arms recognizes the need in the community to reach out and help with food, spiritual direction and a place to feel welcome. We let them know they are welcome to come and worship here at the church. We are all children of God and want to be treated with respect and dignity while meeting basic human needs.
Open Arms Food Pantry is open every Tuesday, 2PM to 4PM. We collect toiletries, food and monetary (to purchase food) donations for the pantry to be distributed each week to those in need. This ministry has proved to be of help throughout the community. Our pastors, Stephen ministers, prayer team and members pray with each of the families and they are so appreciative of the time we take with them and to getting to know them.
