From Pastor Steven
Church Family,

I would like to personally invite you to our annual Equip Conference this Saturday January 22 from 10am-3pm. The theme is simply "The Gospel is still good news!" The main sessions will unpack the major themes of the gospel and the breakouts will discuss
practical ways to live in light of the gospel. Each participant will choose two breakouts to attend. I am excited about the lineup of guest speakers that will be with us, especially our very own Jacob Simmons who is currently serving on the pastoral staff at Central Baptist Church in Jonesboro. You will not want to miss his sermon. This conference is a very easy way for us to fulfill our mission as you will leave encouraged and with practical tips to express the light of the gospel in your everyday life.

We are a little behind on registration this year due to me being out with Covid last month, so please, PLEASE, do not wait to register. I will be placing the lunch order early next week and will need a headcount. You can register online at or by calling the church office at 870-295-9131 or by contacting me directly at 870-273-5768. I also know that many are still hesitant due to the current spike in Covid cases. In all honesty, I do not expect more than 50-60 people total, which will give us plenty of space to spread out. 

As always, feel free to reach out to me with any questions. 

Love you guys,
Pastor Steven
