Old pulpit gets ‘New Life’

Submitted information | For The Arkadelphian

Those who have been in downtown Arkadelphia the past few months have likely noticed some church furniture on a street corner, tagged with For Sale signs.

The items, particularly a pulpit, finally found a new home this week thanks to a local pastor. Martin Jones, pastor at New Life Church in Arkadelphia, saw the pulpit for sale on the corner of 7t and Clinton streets and decided to take it for a test drive.

On the afternoon of Thursday, Oct. 21, Jones took the Gospel to the streets, preaching a few words and attracting a small crowd before moving it from the street corner and taking it to its new home at New Life. Jones noted that the pulpit “works great.”
