Hi! Welcome from the staff and congregation
Pastor Mike & Cathy Howell
Mountain Home is nestled in the heart of the Ozark Mountains in north central Arkansas. The city is a growing commercial and health care center for the region but it still retains a wonderful small town atmosphere. The scenic beauty of the mountains, two lakes, and a great trout fishing river give the Mountain Home area a special quality that many of us have fallen in love with. First Assembly is a vibrant, growing fellowship committed to taking the message of Christ's love to our generation. You will find that our people are warm and friendly and that the worship services are a lively mix of contemporary worship and solid ministry of the Word. Unabashedly Pentecostal, the worship services are built around the joy of the Lord and a deep sense of the presence of the Holy Spirit. From the nursery to the Young At Heart, every ministry of the church is designed to reach, teach, and serve in His love. Please consider this greeting an invitation to visit First Assembly.

A lot of voices compete for our dreams during the Christmas season. There is the shrill soprano of Alvin and the Chipmunks and the bellowing bass of Dr. Seuss’ Grinch. Ah yes, the voices to entertain. Then there are the voices that, in the midst of the seasonal spending frenzy, try to lure us to their latest and greatest product that we or our children can only dream of. “Your tech is outdated! Wal-Mart over rated!” they sing in melodious rhyme - not once or twice, but so often that we have it memorized word for word as the months of November and December drag to an end.
In the forest of ads and movies and days that are called Black, you must wonder sometimes if a saner dream can somehow be seen. There are arguments for this return even as assaults are made on its mention. Some say that this dream is not to be seen. Not in schools or stores or even in the common courtesy of a friendly greeting, for somehow saying “Merry Christmas” might offend.
Yet, beyond the sight and reason of modern man, we find that the dream is still alive. For before time began, and, yes, as though etched in everlasting stone for all eternity, comes a voice that prevails above the din of modern times and the cacophony of those who oppose its humble call. The dream is, as the words of Christ have always been, a simple summon to His children. It asks but one question: “Are the dreams that you are having eternal ones?”
But, unlike so many dreams before, this one has an ending. Can you see it? Can you hear it? With an outstretched hand and a soft voice, He says to you, “I can make your dreams eternal.”
That indeed is a December dream that lasts forever.
