200,000 REASONS STUDENT BACKPACK MINISTRY
Each week we invite the people of our church to help supply meals for local elementary schools whose students suffer from food insecurity. Lists of food items are distributed at the church and donations are accepted throughout the week. We have been able to feed a total of 35 children from Chenal, and Watson Elementary each week through this ministry.
DIRTY HANDS PROJECT
HVUMC volunteers meet at 8am every 4th Saturday and travel to AR FoodBank to deliver food to local residents.
INFANT CARE MINISTRY
Laundry baskets with infant necessities, bottles, pacifiers, two sets of clothing, baby bath, diapers, baby wipes, and more are collected and distributed to area hospitals, Helping Hands, the AR Department of Health for new moms in need.
Sunday School classes, Boy/Girl Scouts, and Highland Valley Youth provide dinner the 4th Friday evening of every month to the residents of Our House – a shelter that provides women, men, and children transitional housing.

Last year we supplied 642 uniform shirts to these students. We also help with underwear, socks and coats. If you would like to be part of this ministry, please contact the church at 501.224.6047.
OTHER MISSION/OUTREACH OPPORTUNITIES
HVUMC children and youth ministries participate in local mission projects around the city and state throughout the year. HVUMC also partners with the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) to provide disaster relief as needed. We were able to send financial support, through UMCOR for the recent flooding in Arkansas,Oklahoma, and Kansas.
