INGATHERING is a conference-wide service event to raise awareness about hunger in Arkansas and to provide needed supplies in times of disaster. It is also a way for the Conference to reflect on how much each Arkansas United Methodist church gives in time, talents, and resources to their local community.

For the service event at the Arkansas Food Bank, volunteers will bag potatoes, pack several varieties of beans, and receive and sort supply kits and holiday food items.
