This Saturday, October 12th at 1pm, First Presbyterian, along with Arvest Bank, will be sponsoring the UAFS Volleyball game against Texas A&M Commerce. Tailgate begins at Noon outside Stubblefield Center with free hotdogs, chips and coke.  Admission is FREE and any donations collected will go to More Than Pink Komen Ozark. 

We would love to have the place packed with our First Pres family! Come out and support our UAFS Volleyball players! Four players attend Treehouse regularly:  Anna Demmer, Lauren Wood, Erin Black and Rachel Williams.

Feel free to wear pink or any First Presbyterian gear you might have. Please stick around after the match as some of the players would like to take a group picture.  We will do this on the floor.

St. John’s Episcopal Church Renovation Open House
The churches of the downtown Fort Smith Lenten Lunch Program are invited to an Open House to celebrate the renovations of this church on the National Historic Register.  Last Lent the church was under renovations and you were invited to see the work in progress.  That work is now completed and we invite to an Open House! A dedication service will begin the Open House at 3:00 p.m. with a selection of music, tours and free reception.  Come enjoy a tour of this beautiful Neo-Gothic church in the downtown Belle Grove neighborhood.
