For King and Kingdom Update

During the last weekend of September, a leadership team from First Baptist Church of Hot Springs led their fourth Men of the Ouachitas – FBC retreat. It was a powerful and significant retreat for the eight men of their church who attended. The success of this FBC MOO mission is the fruit of the For King and Kingdom ministry that Lake Valley began in earnest in 2016.…

Created With a Purpose

Created With a Purpose This fall, the Lake Valley Women’s ministry has launched four new groups into study, discussion and fellowship. On Tuesday evenings, three new groups are wrestling with core elements of their identities as women of God as they participate in Foundations, Biblical Femininity, and Embracing Purpose. A fourth group is also studying Foundations on…

Children’s Ministry Spotlight

When I came to Lake Valley three years ago to worship again with Aaron, Misty and their family, I had no idea what blessings were in store for me. I have been reunited with so many friends from the past that make me feel so at home. Jill Johnson was one of those friends and she first connected me to the Getting Ahead program. Then, when Morgan shared the needs of the…

Women of the Ouachitas

Women of the Ouachitas: My Journey For the past several years, God has put a yearning in my heart for work. As a stay at home mom, I was feeling a void in that aspect of my life. So, I began fervently praying for God to show what that “work” would be for me. A couple of small businesses came and went, and the longing still remained. I prayed, journaled, read, and waited.…

Discipling Young Adults at LVCC

Discipling Young Adults at LVCC A few years ago our daughter was in youth group Ascent. She had developed close relationships with three other girls that were attending Ascent, as well as her high school. We were so thankful for the relationships, along with the leaders and support that came from Ascent. We began to learn how important this was to these girls’…

Men of the Ouachitas

MEN OF THE OUACHITAS (MOO) Why do I love MOO? Because I love to win! It is that  simple. The Bible tells us often that we are in a spiritual battle. I believe this and I love that we are in the fight. MOO is a battlefield, or war zone, for the hearts of men. We know that men are wounded by sin, fearful in spirit, held captive by strategies that do not work, and are…

Lake Valley Women

Lake Valley Women As we think of Lake Valley as a training center, we seek to provide the framework which will prepare each of us as women to be firmly established in our faith, to fully embrace our own uniqueness, to discover a direction and purpose for our life, and to fulfill our Lake Valley mission of loving and serving like Jesus. Imagine with us a time when every…

Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday Palm Sunday is my favorite Sunday of the year. When my children were little, we somehow ended up with a book about Jesus and his triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Austin and Abby loved this little book so much. It seemed like we read it over and over, throughout the year, not just during the Easter holiday. My kids LOVED to dress up and act like their favorite…
