Mission workers spread joy throughout community

A non-profit mission of the Arkansas Area United Methodist Church is visiting Pine Bluff to offer assistance to members of the community who cannot maintain their homes due to physical or financial limitations. This is a seven-day camp for junior and senior high school students involved in the Ozark Mission Project. The students work 12 week-long camps throughout Arkansas each summer. This year, there are 50 campers working in nine different sites throughout the Pine Bluff.

Jewish temple prepares for final service

For the past 149 years, members of Pine Bluff’s Jewish community have been worshipping at Temple Anshe Emeth. However, after today, the Temple will close its doors, likely never to open again. The congregation will host their last service at 10 a.m. at the First Presbyterian Church Chapel in Pine Bluff.
