Second Street Pantry was established as a community outreach program by just a few church members in 2011. Today, it serves hundreds of community residents facing food insecurity each and every month. Our hope is that every person who enters our doors feels welcomed, is fed, and experiences the love of Christ through our volunteers. We pray that all who enter leave with a sense of hope and love. Second Street Pantry is located on the church premises. Our pantry hours are Tuesdays | 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm.

How can you help? There are three ways to participate: donating items, donating money, donating time. Email us  2ndStreetPantry@gmail.com

The Benevolence Fund

The Benevolence Fund is an assistance ministry to people seeking financial help.
Trained volunteers interview anyone requesting support. A one-on-one consultation addresses the person’s needs spiritually and physically. Each individual is lifted in prayer. We offer assistance to Benton County residents only, with the exception of Rogers residents. We begin distributing numbers by 8:30 am, on Tuesdays, and we begin calling numbers from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm. We stop for the day when funds run out.

Please enter through the West Entrance of the church, directly off the parking lot. A valid photo ID is required. We provide help with gas vouchers, shut off notices and rent assistance with late notices. (Certain restrictions apply.)

Mission Trips

Our love of God and neighbor sometimes takes us across the world to share the love and grace of Jesus Christ.  Commissioned persons are usually (not always) called to serve outside the country, as pastors, teachers, doctors, nurses (or in other healing ministries), social workers, and in a variety of other ways. In 2018, we traveled abroad to Haiti, Spain, Nicaragua. We also shared the love of Christ locally here in Arkansas.

If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel. This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions. GriefShare groups meet weekly to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements: Video seminar with experts, support group discussion, and personal study and reflection.

 

Our next GriefShare seminar takes place in August 2018. We meet weekly on Sundays from 3-5pm in the Gathering Room. It is a 13-week seminar. On November 11, from 3pm to 5pm we will host an additional seminar called Surviving the Holidays, which focuses on helping you cope with the Holidays after the loss of a loved one. On December 9 at 5PM we invite you to a special Blue Christmas a worship service dedicated to Hope for Healing.
