Revive Community Care began in 2010 with an invitation for the homeless to attend an Easter program of the life, death, and resurrection of our Savior. Two weeks later church members were at Unity Park supplying the thirsty with cool bottled water.
Revive Community Care was developed as an outreach ministry of the Arlington Seventh-day Adventist Church to serve its community of believers and community at large with needs such as food, clothing and Christmas gifts for children, therefore, providing opportunities for members to serve.
You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.-Galatians 5:13
Revive continues to reach out to those in need, therefore Revive needs constant support from those individuals who are financially able to support this ministry. Revive cannot continue without support and prayers. Please feel free to donate any time in person or online.
