GRAVETTE BRIGHT FUTURES
Gravette Bright Futures is a nonprofit organization that helps meet the needs of Gravette School District students. These needs come in many forms: medical, clothing, food and school supplies.
Samaritan's Feet is an annual mission that provides shoes for school children. Our church provides monetary donations and volunteers to wash feet and distribute shoes to Gravette students.
SNACK PACKS FOR KIDS
This ministry provides weekend food packs for Gravette students. This is done in partnership with Samaritan Community Center in Rogers. Highlands Church provides volunteers once a month and contributes monetary donations.
THE LITTLE FREE PANTRY
Our youth have set up a food pantry in the rear parking lot. This mission is supported by our congregation bringing canned food and other non-perishable items, such as: peanut butter, rice, beans, canned fruit, canned vegetables, canned meat, canned pasta, toiletries, diapers, wipes, etc.

THE POWER OF ONE
Each dollar bill folded length wise and placed in the collection plate on Saturday or Sunday goes to a special mission fund called The Power of One. The Power of One provides an opportunity for Highlands Church members to make a small donation to be used for missions. Those ‘ones’ add up and do marvelous things to support local needs, like helping children in need in the Gravette School District by providing financial support to Bright Futures, Snack Packs, and the Samaritan’s Feet ministry. The Power of One concept also extends to food donations for the Little Free Pantry. Getting into the habit of bringing a food item to each worship service can go a long way in helping the needy in our community.
Serving is a big part of who we are. We have many mission opportunities throughout the year
to support and love our church, community and one another.
