The Arbor Church is committed to The City of Tampa and our heart is to love, help, connect & walk alongside people through life. We have two missional ministries we directly support both financial and through direct service. Additionally, we help other organizations throughout the year and are wholly vested in seeing our neighborhoods and workplaces as areas to serve.

Apartment Life helps apartment owners care for residents by connecting them in relationships. This, in turn, helps improve the community's financial performance through online reputation, resident satisfaction, and resident retention.
The Arbor has 4 couples are are members and Apartment Life (also known as CARES) Team members at four different Tampa Bay Communities! 

Opportunities to serve include:
- Attending events hosted by our Arbor/CARES teams
- Helping at the events; serving food, greeting residents, cleaning up etc. 
- Giving financially to the couples who are doing this ministry work alongside full-time jobs/life responsibilities. 
-Pray!! That these residents would see purpose in their lives through Christ, that those serving on CARES would be sustained in their work. 

The Tampa-St. Petersburg metropolitan area has the highest rate of homelessness in the nation, according to the National Alliance to End Homelessness (2012). Our church is currently planted in the heart of where visible need is occurring (Downtown/The Heights) and it's easy to question how to help such an epidemic. But every Wednesday night a team of faithful Arbor members + outside volunteers serve dinner to the homeless, right on the streets where they live. 

Opportunities to serve include: 
- Assisting with grocery shopping/supply pick ups
- Cooking for the weekly meal
- Participating in the downtown walk/meal distribution on Wednesday nights
- Pray!! That needs would be met, that these individuals would see light in their lives through this ministry and that they would know they are loved by God.
