This summer, Central United Methodist Church in Rogers is hosting a group of high school teenagers from all over the state for an event called Ozark Mission Project (OMP). This group of youth and adults will be gathering July 11-15 to do mission work within the community for neighbors in need (such as for the elderly, disabled, low-income). In other communities, we have done things such as building wheelchair ramps, yardwork, painting, minor repairs, etc. Celebrating 30 years this year, and now with 12 camps each year, this is the first time a camp is being hosted in Rogers. Central is so excited to be hosting a camp this year!
Below, you will find a list of projects they can and cannot do as well as the client application form. They do not charge for labor or materials. Their services are based on all different kinds of need. Please have potential clients fill out a confidential application form for each family unit that might need assistance. Keep in mind that they can only work within a 30 mile radius of the campsite and an adult family member needs to be at home the days we complete their work. Below is also a pamphlet that explains OMP that can be given to potential clients. Even more information can be found at www.ozarkmissionproject.org
All applications can be mailed to:
2535 West New Hope Road,
Rogers, AR 72758.
They will continue to collect applications until the week before camp. Their staff will visit potential worksites on Wednesday or Thursday before camp begins. You can also contact Karent Anderson at 479-372-3191
