Home from the hospital meals, or the Meal Train, is a ministry in
which we as a church family serve to provide meals for our members who have
been in the hospital due to major surgery, a major injury, serious illness, or
birth/adoption of a baby. This helps our members who live alone or have family
members that work and need help with meals temporarily. In the last year, we
started using MealTrain.com to organize meals so that volunteers will be able
to see which dates are available to provide and deliver meals, as well as restrictions,
allergies, and preferences of the recipient. It allows you to see the meals
that other volunteers are providing so that none are duplicated. If you aren’t able to
cook or deliver a meal, but would still like to provide one, you may purchase a
gift card or donate money to the Benevolent fund. If you do not have access to
the Meal Train, just contact Cathie Tillery at the church office and she will
sign you up to provide a meal. If you are not able to deliver the meal, please
let Cathie know so that she can make the necessary arrangements for the
Food Pantry operates two days a month for four hours each day. We
gather canned and boxed food items with emphasis on nutritional balance. Every
client receives an amount of food directly proportional to the amount of people
in that household. We make every effort to make perishable items available when
possible. How often a client should be allowed to seek help is as often as
needed. There is no good reason to turn people away because they have been
helped recently. Ministry volunteers aid in the distribution of food on days
the food pantry is open. In addition, volunteers are needed to help unload and
set up the boxes that are to be handed out before the food pantry is open.
Usually the set up takes place on a different day than the day food is
We are blessed to have First Step Malvern an organization that

relationship with these folks and are so blessed to have opportunity to show
them the love of God.

Christmas Shoe Boxes - Throughout the year we collect shoe boxes from all
of our members. We fill each box with small gifts, then we fill a trailer full
of several hundred boxes and give every First Step participant a Shoe Box full

announcements, mark your calendar and help us deliver a Christmas Shoe Box.
This outreach is designed to help meet various physical and
spiritual needs of the coaches, band directors, staff and students of our local
school districts. This covers a wide array of meal times and devotionals for
different events. During the school year, this ministry stays busy bringing the
message of Jesus to these students. We provide breakfast and devotional every
Friday morning. Every other Wednesday at the Malvern field house, speakers are
set up to bring a devotion and pizza. We also feed the Malvern football team
every Friday game night with a speaker to deliver a message.
This ministry's main goal is to meet the
foster/adoption crisis in Hot Spring County head-on. In addition to fostering
and adoptive needs, we also strive to play a preventative role in keeping
children out of the system. We go about this in many ways. Namely, supporting
local DCFS, school counselors, provisional placement situations, fictive
kinship placements, fostering families, adoptive families, and various resource
This ministry works directly with foster and adoptive families in
our county. Within our local schools, opportunities have risen to support
teachers and other first line of contact professionals in handling fictive
kinship placements. Even, our local DCFS caseworkers know that they have a
resource through this ministry. Our church has set up a Resource Closet to house items
on hand for when needs arise.

Multiplied Ministries partners with the Hot Spring Country Drug
Court to help provide individuals in these programs with the household items
they need as they try to build their life and home. Through this ministry we
have been able to reach people and families that we may have never crossed
paths with. Alleviating the stress of acquiring furnishings for a home is one
way we can help the individuals of the Hot Spring County Drug Court focus on
more crucial areas of their lives.
The purpose of this ministry is to serve the Hispanic/Latino
community of Hot Spring County through education and information, creating
connections and relationships for the purpose of making and maturing disciples
of Jesus. The launching point of the ministry will be through ESL. ESL stands for
English as a Second Language. An ESL program is coursework designed to
communicate in English. Learning a new language can be a daunting and
intimidating task. It is our desire to create a safe environment where students
can learn and advance in their pursuit of the English language.
At Second Baptist Church, there are several opportunities to
worship and serve through music. Some of these opportunities include singing
with the praise team, playing instruments in the band, and working in the sound
booth. In addition, we have opportunities to get your children involved in
music as early as 3rd grade. We have a kid’s praise team that practices throughout the month and
helps lead on certain Sundays. If your child has a desire to learn an
instrument or can already play an instrument they can assist in
the music on Wednesday nights and eventually Sundays. Music is an intricate
part of corporate worship. God has gifted many people with talent in singing or
playing an instrument. Our Music program attempts to make an avenue for church
members to use these talents.

Ladies' Retreat: The Ladies' Retreat is an annual event in
the fall. The retreat is a time to focus on the bond we share as women in the
