Loma Essex Ministry

The  UMW began a "Loma Essex Ministry" to support our college students for which Loma had a great concern.   It was Loma's wish to keep in touch with these students from our church.  Please inform us of any change in your student's mailing address or if you have a freshman student to add to the list by calling the church office at 870-946-2328 or emailing the church at  
We ask for your prayers that this ministry will be the blessing we intend and we thank you for your support.

Pentecost, occurring  the 50th day after Jesus’ resurrection, is the Church's celebration of the gift of the Holy Spirit.   Many, in fact, think of Pentecost as the "birth day" of the Church, because it was on that day that we received the gift that has made it all possible.  We celebrate the season of Pentecost longer than is traditional – from the 50th day of Easter until the Labor Day Sunday, when Kingdomtide season begins.
The liturgical color for Pentecost is red symbolizing the blood of Jesus and the fire of the Holy Spirit.
