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: Rosey Booth is our worship leader where she leads us in a spiritual worship to God. 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: Beverly Brewer is our kid's pastor where she brings more than twenty years of experience to our children. 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.

The Problem of Pride
Read Jeremiah 47:1 through 48:47
When we compare ourselves to others and decide that we are superior to them, we are walking in pride. A man with a prideful heart believes he is better than another person because of greater experience, qualifications, or abilities. Pride tells us that we deserve more than what we’re getting or more than someone else.
“We have heard of Moab’s pride—how great is her arrogance!—of her insolence, her pride, her conceit and the haughtiness of her heart” (Jeremiah 48:29).
God was judging Moab because of Moab’s pride. Pride led to Moab’s destruction as a nation.
Our pride can be removed when we put our lives in proper perspective with a correct view of God. When we realize how great God is and choose to compare ourselves to Him instead of to others, there is no room for pride in our hearts.
We must accept that we do not deserve more than others. The good things we have in our lives come because the goodness of Christ, not because we deserve them.
Prayer Suggestion: Lord, please help me to walk humbly before You today.
Quicklook: Jeremiah 48:29–31
