‘Around The State’ is a new segment being added to our eMagazine that goes out bi-weekly to our email subscriber list. In this segment, which will appear in the last issue of each month, we’ll be featuring churches’ staff changes, as well as church news and big announcements you send us. We want Arkansas Baptists to know what’s going on around the state and be able to celebrate together and encourage each other.

Here are some news and updates from “Around the State.”
