NEW YEAR'S PACKAGE: We are still distributing our "2021 Package". The package includes: a holiday greeting card from Pastor Holley, a 2021 calendar, and a booklet. The calendar has monthly affirmations that will help you get through the year. The booklet is on fasting: what fasting is and how to do it. We want to get 2021 started right by devoting quality time to prayer and fasting. We are starting a 21 day fast beginning January 1, 2021 (Click to watch video). We want the favor of God and every now and then you need to sacrifice with prayer and fasting (Mark 9:29).

FORGOTTEN HARVEST & GLEANERS FOOD DISTRIBUTION: Our food distribution program takes place each month on the 2nd & 4th Friday. We partner with Forgotten Harvest & Gleaner's food bank to distribute food to those in our community in need. We will have a food distribution this Friday, 1/22 here at the church. We thank God that we were able to feed 12K families in 2020 and we look forward to being a blessing again in 2021!
TRANSITIONING TO NEW SENIOR LEADERSHIP: Our beloved pastor of the last 48 years, Rev. Dr. Jim Holley, will retire at the stroke of midnight on December 31, 2021. In his message to the congregation, Rev. Holley shared with us his prayer that we remain faithful to God as we walk through these coming months of transition that will lead the next man or woman to serve as Senior Pastor.
11 persons were appointed as the Pastoral Transition Committee to serve as the liaison between the congregation and the individual called by God to shepherd His flock. The members of the Pastoral Transition Committee realize that identifying a new Senior Pastor will require that we understand who we are as a congregation. Therefore, it is important that all members of the Historic Little Rock Baptist Church be engaged in this sacred and holy process. Please visit our Pastoral Transition page and see our progress so far.
