Flood Volunteers Needed

ARUMC has set up a base of operations at the Walnut Ridge UMC to house and feed volunteers. We have been asked by the Lawrence county Judge to bring our resources to Lawrence county to assist residents with clean up and recovery. Byron Mann and Sheri Matthews are on site and ready to deploy teams of helpers. We are accepting non ERT trained volunteers to work with trained teams. The need is great as we have still not been able to access some areas due to high water.

Senior Sunday Celebration

Our Senior Sunday was a blessing to all. We were so thankful to celebrate our graduating seniors Class of 2017.
