Ozark Adventist School: This school year has been a fast start. We are excited to have completed the outdoor classroom porches and soon the drainage portion of this project will be complete. Donations have made this project possible. Our next vision is to construct the roofs for the porches. This will require raising funds to accomplish this goal. On October 23, we are having our Glow Ride night bike-a-thon. This is a fundraiser for Home & School. We appreciate Home & School, they provide many activities and contribute to school improvement projects. If you would like to give to these projects, please contact us at 479-279-8700 or contribute by marking your donation to OAS in your giving.  We thank you so much for your support.


Old Testament Bible Study  You are invited to join Jesus in the Old Testament, an audio Bible study led by Dr. Jon Paulien, former Dean of the School of Religion at Loma Londa University.  Is it really true that the Old Testament is filled from beginning to end with symbols and figures that point to Jesus?  Come and find out. Bring your Bibles!  Thursdays at 2:00 p.m. at the church.
