A New Year Ahead

Along with our community, we welcome this New Year. Hopes are high that the Pandemic which engulfed our nation and the world will be behind us before long, yet – along with you – we will take each day as it comes.  We are honored and humbled for the privilege we have of walking this journey alongside each of you. Thank you.  Here are some things ahead of us at Mission Arlington as the New Year begins.

Meeting Daily Needs for People in a Moment of Crisis

As we have been for the past 35 years, and especially for the past two years, we will continue to be here every day to meet the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of the many families and individuals who walk through our front door. Our commitment is to do more than merely “hand out” the items which you so graciously give, but to provide authentic care, a listening ear, and a heart to help for each person in need. Our medical and dental clinics will continue to care for people’s health-care needs, and our weekly after-school programs and Bible Studies (scattered across our community) are already in full-swing.

Martin Luther King, Jr. “Day of Service”

On Monday, January 17th, a national holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and his contributions to our country, Mission Arlington will be a place wide-open to receive your services, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.  Many voices across our city are encouraging us to make this holiday a “day on” instead of a “day off.” The New York Times is reporting today what many in our community have already discovered – volunteering is a great way to make a difference – not just in the lives of others, but in our own lives as well. The money quote: “. . .the solution may lie in what we do for others, not ourselves.”  Come by yourself, with a friend, with your family, your team, or your company, but please come. There is so much to do, and so many ways we can make a difference together.

Rainbow Express®

Rainbow Express is our version of a back-yard Bible club – with songs, snacks, crafts, creative games, and teachings from the Bible.  Student groups come in from across our state and around the country to lead Rainbow Express throughout our community.  Children love Rainbow Express, and so do their moms and dads. Please pray with us as we get ready to share God’s love with the children in our community.

Giant Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Sunday is on April 17th this year, which means that our Giant Easter Egg Hunt happens on Saturday, April 16th, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  This is a family-friendly event with carnival games, free food, bouncy houses, fire trucks, free candy for kids, and a giant, 100,000-egg Easter egg hunt. It takes a lot of volunteers to help us out on that day, and it is so much fun.  Plan on joining us again this year as we share God’s love with the children (and their families) across our community.

So Much More

Fun days, sports leagues, summer camps, and so much more will make up 2022.  Your support means so much to us, and we love it when we see you and your family/team show up to help.  We are so thankful for your support, and we are looking forward to serving our Lord together with you throughout this brand new year!  We are grateful for you!
