Arrow Ministries is an non-profit grass roots Christian organization that is an outreach program with a two-fold mission. The primary goal is to provide area youth with fundamental Christian learning by incorporating an entertaining outdoor skill to help hold their interest. Secondly, as avid archers, to seek to create an appreciation of and an interest in the sport of archery. The hopes are that not only their faith would grow and flourish, but their enthusiasm for the sport as well. Christ using archery as a way to spread God's word. Arrow Ministries goals are:
To bring the next generation to the outdoor lands with the Creator in mind.
To step foot on grounds created for them, by God.
Survival skills are not just for woods, but for life as well. Arrow Ministries belief is through:
These traits build good character and attitude on and off the hunting grounds of life. As they hear the word of God, they are encouraged to allow God to direct their lives and be in control. Ultimately, they will feel the bow controlling the arrow, and relate how it is up to them as individuals, to aim for the real prize, Heaven.
This year we will have a camouflage clothing swap. Most of us have closets full of camo hunting clothes! If you have any hunting clothes, boots, socks, backpacks, etc. that no longer fit or that you not longer use, please bring them so someone else can use them! This is a great opportunity to help someone just getting started in hunting!
