Arkadelphia’s First Baptist Church will offer the grief support ministry, Griefshare, starting Monday for anyone in the area who has experienced the loss of a spouse, child, family member or friend.
The church will be giving out oats, cereal, snack bars, water, pita chips, macaroni and cheese and other items while supplies last. Supplies are limited, and one car is allowed for pick up.
The Prayer Celebration will be held again at the Blakelytown Event Center.
Greater Pleasant Hill Baptist Church will celebrate the 22nd pastor and wife appreciation honoring Pastor Lewis A. Shepherd Jr. and Sister Joyce Shepherd.
On the afternoon of Thursday, Oct. 21, local pastor Martin Jones took the Gospel to the streets, preaching a few words and attracting a small crowd.
The first C.O.G.I.C. established in Arkadelphia, the church was founded in 1917 beneath a brush arbor and was initially (and aptly) named The First Church of God in Christ.
The Rev. Jerry Garrett is the scheduled guest speaker.
