Outreach at St. Theodore's
St. Theodore's has long been known in the Bella Vista community for our Outreach efforts. From the beginning of our formation in 1977, we have pursued an intentional focus on serving the people of Benton County and beyond.
Serving Our Community
At St. Theodore's we believe strongly that to serve Christ is to serve others. We are committed not only to our parishioners and our immediate community of Bella Vista, but also to the wider world. Through our Mission & Outreach ministries and parish-based programs, as well as the ministries of the Diocese of Arkansas, we support God's mission on earth to bring the love of God to others. We are committed to God's creation, to justice, and to peace and the well-being of all of our sisters and brothers.
The list of organizations that we support continues to grow. Here are some of the ways in which we currently serve our community and beyond:
- Helping Hands Food and Clothing Center
- NW Arkansas Children’s Shelter
- Benton County Women’s Shelter
- Sharing and Caring
- Shoebox Ministry
- Heifer International
- United Thanks Offering
- Northwest Women’s Community Correctional Center (worship service)
