The Week of Sunday, October 26, 2014
WELCOME! Our desire is for you not only to feel welcomed by a warm handshake and a friendly
smile, but to experience the joy of serving God with other caring believers in Northwest Arkansas!
First Baptist has something for everyone in your family.
We sincerely want to help you connect with others and find a place of service, so we invite you to
visit us after the Sunday morning service at our Welcome centers in our church foyer. Our friendly
staff and church members will do everything they can to answer all of your questions and help
explain our limitless opportunities for authentic fellowship; whether it’s a ladies Bible study, men’s
outreach event, student or children’s activity or camp, or a great Sunday Morning Bible Study class
- we have a place for you to plug in to grow and serve.
Feel free to also check out our website at and see all of the exciting
opportunities for you and your family to engage in ministry here at First Baptist.
