Church Ministries

Childrens Ministry

Children are important to us! Our people love our kids, and we have programs on Wednesday nights and Sunday mornings just for them.

Discipleship Courses

Six-week discipleship courses helping us grow "upward" to godliness, "inward" to fellowship, "outward" to ministry, and "forward" to fruitfulness. Courses are six weeks long, offered at staggered times in the spring and fall.

Faith & Finances

Jesus is making all things new, including our money and relationships, and God has chosen to use our money to accomplish His purpose in the world. Join us for a 12-week course on how the gospel impacts all areas of our lives. This financial literacy course is specifically designed for people of low to moderate income levels. Offered in the fall. Call the church office (870-786-5468) for more details.


This is a program featuring biblical concepts for healing from grief. Offered during the week. Call 870-786-5468 to find out if there is a class currently meeting. Each session is self-contained, so you may join at any time.

Youth Ministry

Led by Mr. Sandy Carter, our youth have a great time caring for one another and learning to follow Jesus. We have weekly activites on Wednesday nights, monthly events, and summer activites such as trips, mission projects, and camp.
