    Sunday Morning Teaching Series from Dr. Ron

    The Old and New Testament are filled with stories that tell of God's greatness, grace and saving power.  For 8 Sundays starting July 1, we will look at a different Old Testament story to learn the phenomenal truths hidden there.  Join us on Sunday mornings for any or all of these messages.

    Sunday evening teaching series

    This 26-week series is an in-depth look at 1 Peter.  Attendees will receive a learner's guide each week to take notes on as we learn from Peter how to live together as fellow followers of Jesus.

    Dr. Ron will teach this series in the 6 p.m. worship service that meets in the Chapel.  Everyone is welcome and invited.

    We will take a break from our 1 Peter series on July 8 (6 p.m.) for the message: "We've Been Flooded Out" - the second message in our "GREATEST STORIES EVER TOLD O.T. VERSION" series.

    Meet our Senior Pastor

    Dr. Ron Wilcoxson is our new 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 service/multiple style churches, although for the last 15 years, his churches have been primarily contemporary worship churches.  Dr. Ron has been married to Angela for 43 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 in Blytheville.  He also loves worshiping, teaching and leading others to Jesus.  And, he's pretty good at golf, too.

    Enjoy breakfast each Sunday from 8:30 til 9:15 a.m. @ the Family Life Center's (FLC) "Life Cafe."
