 Last year, the Lord used God's Open Arms and the Kenneth Butler Memorial Soup Kitchen to bless over 500 families during A Day of Love and Caring. Meals were prepared, gifts were chosen, and most importantly, love poured out over everyone in the building. If you know a family in need this holiday season, please consider inviting them to A Day of Love and Caring.

Parents and children are able to "shop" for Christmas gifts for their family members.

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.’
