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.

Read Daniel 3:1 through 4:37; 1 Peter 3:1–22
Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander (1 Peter 3:15–16).
It sounds like Peter may have had in mind the four Jewish young men who served in a pagan king’s court. Whether refusing to bow to an idol or interpreting dreams, Daniel and his friends were always courteous even while living openly for the one true God. Nebuchadnezzar could give them Babylonian names and positions, but they remained unswervingly and unashamedly Jewish in thought, speech, and action.
When everyone else was bowing before the king’s idol, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego literally stood out in the crowd.
What do God’s people today do? Do their actions cause others to see their faith and ask why they are different?
Challenge for Today: Think back to your conversations this last week and evaluate whether anyone listening would think you are a Christian.
Quicklook: 1 Peter 3:13–17
