The mission of Resting Arms Ministries is to serve hurting people trapped by addiction or trauma. We provide hope, healing and freedom in an atmosphere of grace, love and compassion reflective of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

His Resting Arms is a Christ-centered residential facility for people with trauma and addictions. It is a one-year program focusing on establishing our identity in Christ, conquering our issues through prayer and scripture, and finishing up with a discipleship component to prepare our residents to go forth as warriors for Christ.

If you are interested in financially supporting His Resting Arms, make checks payable to Resting Arms Ministries, PO Box 525, Island Falls, ME 04747.

  • Thank you United Baptist Church of Littleton for your expert craftsmen working on the 3rd floor.  Can't wait to see the cabinets Jack is building us.
