We will have one worship service starting Mother's Day, May 10 @ 10:30 a.m.


ALL SUNDAY SERVICES INSIDE THE CHURCH BUILDING HAVE BEEN SUSPENDED UNTIL AT LEAST SUNDAY, MAY 10.  You can see The Crossing contemporary service here each week and our Sanctuary Worship will be live on Ritter Cable TV, Channel 21 @ 10:30 am as well as Facebook.

Starting Mother's Day, May 10, we will have one worship service at 10:30 a.m.  However, we must observe the rules for social distancing.  Therefore, seating will only be on every third row.  Plus, you must stay 6 feet apart from anyone who doesn't live in the same house as you do.  We will also only have three entrances open - the Sanctuary doors, the door to the office complex and the door coming in from the alleyway.  There will be hand santizer available at all these entrances.  Please do not shake hands or hug during our time together.  Ushers will guide worshippers to depart at the close of worship by rows so we can maintain our social distancing at all times.     


ALL WEDNESDAY SERVICES INSIDE THE BUILDING ARE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.  However, we will continue to livestream our Wednesday night teaching for you using Facebook Live @ 5:45 pm  It will be open to the public but if you will send me a Friend Request at Facebook.com/rwilcoxson, you will receive the reminder notice each week with instructions on how to join us live.  Plus, when we're finished, the teaching will be archived so you can log on anytime later and view it. 

If our online ministries are a blessing to you, they might also be to others in your friend list.  You can help by simply clicking the SHARE or LIKE button each week.  

Don't forget that our ministry is still going on and we still need you to be faithful in your tithing and giving.  You can mail your tithe/gifts to the church office at 715 W. Walnut St., Blytheville, AR 72315 or give online at FBCoffering.org.


This Week's Crossing Worship

Like many others, the corona-virus has completely disrupted our schedules.  However, we can overcome that.  For most of us right now, this is merely a nuisance; but for others, this is a matter of life or death.  Please pray for our scientific and medical communities. Please continue to take all necessary precautions and continue to join us either online or via TV for worship.  And, please continue to give, as we will continue to do ministry during this strange corona season.  You can mail your tithe and gifts in at 715 W. Walnut St., Blytheville, AR 72315 or you can give digitally @ FBCoffering.org.


Meet our Senior Pastor

Dr. Ron Wilcoxson is our Senior Pastor.  He brings a new vision to our church in Blytheville, leading us to provide Spirit-filled worship, family oriented Bible study in Blytheville and beyond, and creating ministries for each member of the family.  He has served as the lead Pastor in churches as large as 2100 members and 1600 in average attendance.  His churches have typically been fast growing with lots of people making professions of faith in Christ.  He has been a pioneer in leading multiple services per Sunday, with multiple styles, although for the last 15 years, his churches have been primarily contemporary worship churches.  Dr. Ron has been married to Angela for 44 years.  They have four grown kids, with 2 that serve vocationally as worship leaders. Dr. Ron is committed to a healthy and strong children's & youth ministry, which includes outstanding daycare.  He also loves worshiping, teaching and leading others to Jesus.  And, he's pretty good at golf, too.
