The history of the First Presbyterian Church in Searcy Arkansas

People talk.First Episcopal Church

People shouldn't talk about churches.

Should they?  Gossip? 

Well, I've heard some about this church in Searcy Arkansas that is located at 400 West Arch Street and it is right across the street from another church.

The congregation from both churches could meet in the middle of the street and visit...and talk....

First Episcopal ChurchThe one across the street was the subject of my blog a day or so ago.  It's the Episcopal Church Trinity Parish.

This church is the First Presbyterian Church.

Gossip has it that the First Presbyterian Church used to be a chapel on a military base!  Which one?  Where?  Gossip didn't tell me that but perhaps my Searcy historians can.

It was moved to this site and has maintained its dignity and simple beauty ever since.

Or so the story goes.

Anita and Bob, you two are so funny.  At least you have accepted his apoplexy and are back on good terms with him.  I, personally, am not.  I clicked on his personal verbal apoplexy and heard a bunch of chattering (probably squirrel cussing) and then my computer froze.  I had to reboot to get out of the thing.  He is in Mexico laughing merrily, I'm sure.

Don, did you notice that the church still seems to have that white steeple?  It's visible behind the front facade.

Godmother,

I am sorry your computer froze. It is probably due to the emergency heat having to operate.

Nutsy, my computer just couldn't take that squirrel cussin' but it did come back on so you didn't completely ruin it.  I'm still your godmother.

Godmother,

Thank you much. I got very close to the microphone and spoke very clearly I think.
