In Deuteronomy, God said, “There should be no poor in the land.” In Acts we read where the early church formed such a bond that “there was no poverty among them.” It is God’s desire that everyone has their needs supplied, and it is up to us, the body of Christ, to see that through.
ARM looks for church youth groups, college groups, adults, intergenerational groups and local volunteers. ARM hopes that your team will not only experience the joys of helping a family with repairs or teaching children Bible stories, but that your team will gain an understanding of Christ’s call to serve. Your group will enjoy an experience that allows you to engage the community and gives you a dose of southern and Christian hospitality.
