As Methodists, we pledge to support the ministries of both the local church and the global church with our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. We either directly sponsor or pay a portion of our tithe (or our individual offerings) to help support ministries, within Siloam Springs, the state of Arkansas, and throughout the world.
Ministries Sponsored by Our Church
Angel Tree Every December, our church buys Christmas gifts for local children including toys and clothing.
Back-to-School Shopping Buddies We take a special offering before every school year and take a group trip to Walmart. Volunteers from our congregation are paired with a student and together they knock out their school supply list for the year.
Community Thanksgiving Meal Each Thanksgiving, our congregation prepares a community meal and serves it at the church. We also offer pick-up and delivery.
Loads of Love One day a year, First Church Siloam Springs pays for every load of laundry done in a local laundromat.
