Searcy Welcomes Homeless to Church Potlucks
March 20, 2020

SEARCY, ARK. – On Nov. 2, 2019, the Searcy Seventh-day Adventist Church welcomed 12 homeless men and women from the Searcy community for worship, fellowship and lunch. 

The Searcy community has a homeless camp of about 30 individuals. Several of the local churches in that area have organized a van to pick up people that would like to come to church and eat a hot meal afterward. 

On the first Sabbath of each month, the Searcy church hosts those who would like to participate in the program. In December we had ten guests and we look forward to hosting our new friends each month.

Our members, including our young people, have joined our efforts and help serve potluck. 

We pray that God will lead us in this endeavor, as well as bless our new friends and provide for their physical and spiritual needs.
