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.

Read Acts 17:1 through 19:41
While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, he was greatly distressed to see that the city was of full of idols (Acts 17:16).
Paul even noticed an altar created to worship an “unknown god.” When Paul saw this, he seized the opportunity to reason with the philosophers of Athens. He suggested that the God who had made the universe and everything in it was actually this “unknown” God. He urged them not to think of this God as just another image created by man.
Society worships idols of many kinds. They may not be the traditional wooden totem poles or man-made images formed out of gold, but idols are all around.
Anything elevated above God is an idol. Entertainment, sports, and shopping are harmless pursuits. Yet, when elevated above God, they become idols. Careers and financial pursuits, when raised above God, may also become idols. Christians must be careful where they invest their time, effort and finances.
Nothing should ever be elevated above Jesus!
Challenge for Today: Tear down the idols in your life.
Quicklook: Acts 17:16–29
