COVID-19 SERVING OPPORTUNITIES
Know that in all outreaches, we will be taking strict precautions to adhere to the urgings of our state and national leaders. Strict hygiene, social distancing, small groups of no more than 5-7, minimal physical interaction. These are all things that will be in full effect in any outreach. If you have been in contact with anyone showing any signs of sickness or you yourself are not feeling 100 percent, please do not participate in any of these outreaches.
East Rogers Meal Outreach
As you know, schools are closed and many children depend largely on school meals for their daily meals. So, we are teaming up with other passionate individuals to weekly serve our students and families with meal distribution while at the same time being socially distant and cautious. To learn more or to sign up, click here.
Non-Perishable Food Donations
One of the biggest needs currently (and will continue to be for some time) is keeping food on tables. You can drop off non-perishable food donations out front at either KPC campus. There are large bins out front ready to receive your donations. We'll then donate them to one of the great organizations we are working with to help with food insecurity.
Covid-19 Care Crew
For those that are able to help with basic needs and errands, this is a great place to serve. We will be collecting info on individuals and families that may need groceries/prescriptions picked up, dogs walked, errands ran, etc and we'd like to have a team ready to responsibly respond. To sign up or learn more, click here.
Samaritain Community Center (Springdale and Rogers)
Join us in supporting the great work of the Samaritan Community Center during this opportune time to shine the light of Jesus. There are many volunteer opportunities weekly in need of being filled. To sign up or learn more, click here.
Love NWA Care Baskets
Distancing ourselves from others doesn't keep us from loving and serving them! Grab some essentials (sanitizer, bars of soap, snacks, etc.) and write a note of encouragement and drop off these supplies on the porch of a neighbor, loved one, first responder, or anyone else for that matter. Then, take a picture of yourself making the drop and post using #LOVENWA hashtag.
At KPC, we are continually praying for strategic ways to partner with local ministries and organizations for healthy, reciprocal, and life-giving partnerships. The first mission field outside the four walls of our church is our community, our neighborhoods, our city. Our prayer is that people would find their life and sense of purpose in giving up theirs for the sake of serving others. Our response as Christians should naturally be one that is always seeking to give and serve. And there are many ways you can get plugged into serving and capitalize on the passions and desires God has placed in your heart. Some of the ministries we partner with throughout the year are as follows:
- Loving Choices
- The Call
- East Rogers Outreach
- Grace Hill Elementary
- Knapp Elementary
If you are looking to get involved with any of these organizations, others, or simply learn more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Jesus says in Acts 1:8 that “you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." We see time and time again through scripture that Jesus’ heart is one that beats fiercely for all peoples and all nations. Not only were we created for God’s glory, but we were created to declare and demonstrate God’s glory to all the nations.
At Keypoint Church, we strive to build life-giving reciprocal partnerships with impactful ministries around the globe to advance the kingdom of God and declare His glory to all nations. We desire to be a missional church that continually seeks to understand our part to play in God’s amazing heart for the nations.
We partner with the ARC to plant new churches in the U.S. Some of the other organizations we support, partner with, or are developing partnerships abroad are:
Mar Azul Church and Rios de Agua Viva Churches - Puerto Rico
We also continue to support the great work of missionaries around the globe as they work to advance the kingdom of God in their communities and nations.

At Keypoint Church, we are passionate about serving and caring for people. We believe that as Christians, we should be internally motivated to care for those in the margins of society just as Christ did so beautifully. As an ARC church, we set aside 10% of every dollar that comes into the church to go back into missions and outreach to advance the kingdom of God here on earth!
Our mission at KPC is to “reach people to experience life in Jesus”. The word reach is not a passive or docile word but one that solicits an intentional reaching out, extending God’s heart for the poor and needy in our communities both near and far. This means we can’t sit back and simply wait for people to come flooding through our church doors. We must be intentional in going to and “reaching” out to those around us in hopes that they may experience the amazing grace, love, mercy, and transformative power of our heavenly father.
