First Assembly of God Church
577 Weston Street
Pea Ridge, Arkansas.
I would like to welcome you to our website. We would personally like to invite you to our church where everybody is somebody and Jesus Christ is Lord.
Sometime ago when asked to define ministry, I defined it as touching lives. At Pea Ridge First Assembly of God we are trying to do just that through
Worship: We have a good mixture of traditional and contemporary worship. A worship for all people. This church is where we believe that everyone is important.
Children's Ministry: Puppets, object lessons, light shows and much more is expected when your children visit our church. Most important they will experience love.
FOKUS NIGHT: Wednesday night is totally designed with kid's in mind, a team of many adults set out to bring an exciting hour and half of food, fun, and worship enter-twined together to teach them the love of Christ.
WOMENS MINISTRY: Janis Tanner is our ladies director. They meet once a month on the third Sunday night from 5:00 – 7:00PM.
SMALL GROUPS: The first Sunday night of each month our church divides up into small groups where we have fellowship, food, prayer and bible study. This takes place in the homes of our church members.
FREEDOM FEST: This is by far our largest event of the year. The freedom fest experience will include free food such as grilled hot dogs, chicken half's and all the trimmings. We have inflatables and face painting for the children. If that's not enough then maybe a little live gospel music by local artists and a car show for all ages. We conclude the night with a free fireworks show where more than three thousand rounds of fireworks go off in about thirty minutes. The best part of all, it's FREE. This is one way we try to reach out and touch the lives of the people of Pea Ridge.
Come grow with us as we build a church not only for now but also the future.

Moments of Courage
Read Job 29:1 through 31:40; Acts 7:31–60
When his children’s wrestling and roughhousing crossed the line from fun to dangerous, a young father would utter the same phrase his father had said to him years before: “Don’t let a few moments of courage ruin the rest of your life.”
Stephen had more than a few moments of courage and it didn’t ruin his life. It catapulted him toward eternity as he spoke Holy Spirit-inspired truth. His words infuriated the high priest and the members of the Sanhedrin.
“You stiff-necked people! Your hearts and ears are still uncircumcised. You are just like your ancestors: You always resist the Holy Spirit!” (Acts 7:51).
The Sanhedrin stoned him. But the long-term outcomes were significant: Stephen is honored as the first martyr of the early Christian church. The persecution that followed scattered the believers, who in turn spread the gospel. The man who held coats for those who killed Stephen was eventually saved and became the man Christians know as the apostle Paul.
Christians facing trouble for their faith must stand strong like Stephen even if there are consequences. The impact of such bravery may be beyond measure.
Challenge for Today: Be courageous for Christ.
