List Of Ministries

Backpack Buddies
Led by Chris and Kalah Deitrick and Lori Isbell
Backpacks Buddies is a ministry that reaches the hearts and the needs of elementary children in Mountain View and Timbo. Every Friday of the school year a team meets and packs backpacks full of food for undernourished children. They also include some sort of symbol or activity that points these children to Christ in hopes to meet their spiritual needs.
It takes an hour to an hour and half each Friday to fill and distribute the backpacks. There is a rotating schedule so no one has to work every Friday. If you are interested in getting involved with this ministry contact Chris at 870-214-4750, Kalah at 870-214-6699 or Lori at 870-213-5094.

Faith Promise
Led by Ben Brown and Pastoral Staff
Faith Promise is our Missions Program. We are commanded by Jesus to reach the world with the Gospel (Matthew 28:18-20). Every year we encourage our members to pray and make a promise between them and God on a yearly amount they will give to missions if God will supply. This amount is between you and God, and Flatwoods uses it to reach people around the world.
So get involved with missions and pray and seek what amount God would have you give. If you have any questions you can contact Ben Brown or one of our Pastors.
