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.

Don’t Get Bogged Down
Read Hebrews 11:1 through 13:25
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us (Hebrews 12:1).
A hindrance may slow down progress, but it need not stop it. The presence of those hindrances, does not mean the inevitable destruction of progress. The race that is started is the race that must be finished. The cords of sin that entangle should be broken and shaken off. The hindrances that impede must be removed or circumvented.
Entanglements are not to be courted or examined, they are to be thrown off. Too much focus on the problem can cause a loss of perspective, making the obstacle appear larger than it actually is. The call is for decisive action in dealing with hindrances and sins that threaten to bog down the believer. That action is to throw it off. Keep moving forward. Renew the focus.
The eyes must be fixed on Christ, not on the problem. Do what needs to be done at the moment and move on.
Though for Today: I will throw off everything that hinders my progress.
