  A Day of Love and Caring - 2017

This year, our team of volunteers served over 200 families at the 4th annual "A Day of Love and Caring". Blessings were poured over all those who came to participate and volunteer. There are few greater moments in our year than to watch HUNDREDS of kids get to see and feel the love of Jesus Christ.

The congregation at Park Chapel Christian Church donated over 400 bicycles, and they ALL found a home for Christmas. In total, more than 600 kids visited the fairgrounds for this event. Thank you Jesus for each and every one of these children; His children, precious and pure. 

To all of our volunteers and those who donated during the year to help suport our mission, we are so grateful for your dedication and willingness to #blesstheworld.

Co-Hosting the event with God's Open Arms was the Kenneth Butler Soup Kitchen. They prepared over 550 meals on Christmas Eve, delivering over 100 of those meals throughout the community.

Our Mission Statement

God's Open Arms Ministry is a family of Christian brothers and sisters who strive to love like Jesus; to be His hands, His feet and His voice; as we humbly feed, clothe, visit with, and encourage the homeless and those in need.

Matthew 25:35-40(NIV)

35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
