‘Around the State’ is a segment in the eMagazine that goes out every other Thursday to our email subscriber list. In this segment, which appears in the first issue of each month, we feature church staff changes, as well as church news and announcements you send to us. We want Arkansas Baptists to know what’s going on around the state and be able to celebrate together and encourage each other.
