Baptisms at Mena Seventh-day Adventist Church

August 31, 2022

MENA, ARK. – The Mena Seventh-day Adventist Church has been slowly dwindling for several years. We’ve lost members to COVID-19, including our dear pastor, Ron Patterson, and others to cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. 

We’re delighted to welcome back Tommy Blount and his wife, Kohne, to our church leadership. He led plans for an evangelistic campaign in the fall and realized several who were attending church were ready for baptism. On May 28, 2022, five people were baptized into the Mena fellowship.

We rejoice and celebrate these commitments to the Lord! 

Together, we are looking forward to a fantastic evangelism program. We have 12 people requesting Bible lessons from a mail-out. Some of our newly baptized members have led the way in distributing these lessons. We look forward to the fall, and to the soon coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
