Church News

Larry Pipkin announced that March 12 was his last day at Horseshoe Lake Baptist Church. He is moving on to the Town of Glencoe, which is between Ash Flat and Salem. The new church will be a Christ Centered ministry geared towards the motorcycling community, but focus will still be fulfilling the commandments of our Lord Christ and his teachings.
