Hosting OMP

Monday, June 23 Thursday, June 27

Our church will be hosting an Ozark Mission Project group at the FUMC Hot Springs campus.  Contact Associate Pastor Bill Sardin at (501) 623-6668 ext 134 to volunteer.  We need volunteers in the following areas:

  • Open up their homes as shower houses for kids after the work day
  • Help prepare and serve food for breakfast and lunch
  • Show the hospitable love of Christ to all the youth and volunteers doing mission work for the week


The Underground Youth join their fellow Arkansas Youth at Ozark Mission Project (OMP) every summer.  OMP sends youth across the state of Arkansas for a week of servitude to individuals and families.  In Summer 2018, our youth built wheelchair ramps and stair railings, mended fences, cleaned yards, cleared out garages, and much more in the cities of Jonesboro and Benton.  We're very proud of these students for taking the time out of their summer to work long, hard days to help those in need.

Refuge is an opportunity for youth in grades 6th-9th to be introduced to the connectional events if Arkansas Conference Youth Ministries. They enjoy a weekend in the beautiful outdoors while getting away from the hustle and bustle of school life. They have a chance to refocus their hearts and minds on God without the distractions of daily life.  Refuge, in all its essence, IS a refuge from a busy, challenging world, and indulgence into the pure,

beautiful experience of God’s grace. This event is held every year at Shepard of the Ozarks retreat center located near Harriet, AR.
