A Message From Our Pastor

WHAT A YEAR this has been!!! With Covid-19 and the political climate the way it is, no one knows what to expect next. Well I have decided to let God take care of the larger matters that I can’t change and pay attention to those which I can have influence on by preaching the Gospel. With that said, I want you to know that we will continue to have Church on Sunday morning, Sunday night, and Wednesday night as long as we can unless otherwise prevented.

October is a full ministry month with VBS being held on Wednesday nights in the fellowship building during the month. We also will be celebrating with the Abundance Quartet on Sunday morning October 4 with a fellowship meal to follow and NO evening services that day.

We are still planning to do the traditional Thanksgiving dinner on November 22nd in the evening at 5:00 pm in the fellowship hall. All class Christmas parties are still planned with one exception; they will all be using the fellowship hall rather than eating out this year. Check with you teachers for the time and particulars of your class event.

In December we still plan to celebrate Christmas with some special events and will have the Candlelight service on December 23rd just before Christmas Eve. I plan to be on vacation from December 24 thru New Year’s Day with a possible trip planned to see my Mother and family in Hannibal MO.

Let’s just continue to pray that the rest of the year and the new year will be better!

God Bless You all
Bro. Howard

A Message From Our Youth Director


A Message From Mona Moody & The WMU

October is Mission Emphasis Month. We will be doing a few small things to bring your attention to all of our missions we support. One will be a mission board of past, present, and future missions that you have been involved in. Give Mona Moody a few pictures to go on the board and she will make sure you get them back after the display. Maybe we can even get a video together. This month will be a time to give monetarily to our missions. Our goal is 2,500.00 dollars.

Operation Christmas Child collection week is November 16 -25. We are doing something different. Families can fill a box or more for a child or children. You pick out what goodies you want in the box based on age and gender of child you choose to buy for. There is a list online you can look at and we will have lists at the church on the mission bulletin board. The first Sunday of November, we will have a table with the boxes to fill and lists, labels, etc. We will collect the boxes back at the church the weekend of the 16th. More information will be available soon.

WMU will be collecting socks again this year for a nursing home. Some personal notes would be nice as well to send them. So when you buy your socks to give, just write a couple of personal notes. Those residents would love them.


The ARVBA WMU meets on the third Thursday of each month at the Arkansas River Valley Baptist Association office at 12:30 p.m.
