One of the most significant ministries of Shepherd’s Arms Rescue Mission is the Sunday afternoon Chapel Services at 4 p.m. These services are open to the community and a part of the ministry program for the residential clients. The service is usually conducted in a family devotion setting and everyone is encouraged to dress casually. Using the Bible as a text and teaching in an expository fashion is the model at SARM.
