Wellspring, Williams Plan Party in the Park


A community-wide Party in the Park will be held Saturday, April 9, at Stewart Park in Walnut Ridge. The event, which will run from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., is sponsored by Wellspring Church in Walnut Ridge, as well as the campus ministries office at Williams Baptist College.

"The purpose of our Party in the Park is to promote the kickoff of Wellspring Church and to allow us to meet and minister to the people of our community," said Mark McManus, pastor of Wellspring.

The party will include a soccer clinic with a drawing for a soccer ball, a fishing clinic with a drawing for a rod-and-reel and a tie-dyed t-shirt clinic where children can make their own, free shirt. McManus noted that all the clinics are free, and he said the party will also include games, music and free food.

"This is just a great way for us to show our love for this community and to be involved with the people in our area. Williams is very pleased to partner with Wellspring Church on the Party in the Park," said Becca Knight, assistant director of campus ministries at WBC.

McManus said his church, which has just started, will also host free dental and wellness clinics in coming days. The dental clinic, which includes free examinations and extractions, will be held at the church Friday and Saturday, April 8 and 9, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. both days.

The wellness clinic will be held Thursday, April 7, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m., Friday, April 8, and Monday, April 11, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and Tuesday, April 12, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The wellness clinic will include blood pressure checks, eye checks for adults, reading glasses, and growth and development checks for babies, all free of charge.

"The block party, as well as both clinics, are open to all ages. Wellspring Church wants to be a blessing to the community by showing the love of Christ," McManus said.

The church is located at 116 West Main in Walnut Ridge. For more information contact Mark McManus at (870) 404-2406.
