What's news this week in Crittenden County...

Sunday's massacre during worship service at a small Baptist church in Texas  has prompted churches elders around Crittenden County to take another look at how to best protect congregations. “It has made myself, along with other pastors and leaders, have to re-evaluate systems we have in place and look at things needed to help ensure the safety of those who worship with us,” said Chris McDonald, pastor of one of the county's largest congregations at Life in Christ Church. “It is sad to think we have to view things this way, but it has quickly become the reality.”
