Ways to Engage
As you seek to grow personally through prayer and Scripture reading, continue to reach out to people in your Fellowship circle. This may include people in your current Community Group, other friends from a previous Community Group, someone that you have served with at church, friends that you normally see on weekends at Fellowship, people who have impacted the lives of others in your family, etc. Make time to reach out by writing a note, typing an email, making a call, or sending a text. Strive to be an encourager and be sure to pray for them.
Many of our small groups – Community Groups, Cell Groups, Women’s Studies, Discover Groups, Step Studies, etc. – have continued to find ways to meet together while observing appropriate social distancing. Some are meeting online through a video or chat platform like Skype or Google Hangouts. Others are finding creative ways to adapt to the new safety guidelines and still keep groups connected.
Our Clarity sermon series will continue as planned - watch recorded services here. We encourage you to continue reading, listening, praying, and studying through all the available Clarity Resources at home during the week. FREE Clarity devotional books are available for pick-up, located on a cart outside the doors of the Training Center entrance or download the pdf.
For "Church at Home" curriculum and other resources to help you as a parent to connect with your child, check out our Family Resources webpage that gets updated weekly.

With the coming of COVID-19, every person’s world has changed in some way. In early March, we at the Samaritan Community Center saw that COVID-19 would eventually affect NWA. Some nonprofits temporarily closed, and their employees were sent to work from home. As this created an even greater need for basic services for struggling families, we contemplated what we should do.
