“The Most Southern Place on Earth”:
Helena’s Past, Present & Future
Historian James C. Cobb called the Mississippi Delta “the most southern place on earth.” This region along both sides of the river tells a story that is both distinctive and representative of the larger American story. Rich fertile soil made the Delta the ideal place for cotton cultivation. Wealthy cotton planters bought enslaved black people in droves to work the land. This combination of race and labor has left its mark on the region. Crushing generational poverty, the cultural cornerstone of Blues music, complex and meaningful religious traditions, and so much more all form a place that cannot be explained, it must be experienced.
On February 16, join us for a tour of historical sites in Helena-West Helena, the county seat and largest town in Phillips County, Arkansas. We’ll make stops at Civil War battle sites, memorials, cemeteries, and churches. Along the way you’ll learn how the past impacts the present, how Together For Hope Arkansas is working towards the future, and why people of faith need to understand the history of a place like the Delta in order to work for justice today.
We’ll depart 2BC at 8am and return around 4. The cost will be minimal. If you’re interested in going, please contact Chris Ellis at email@example.com
Come Join us for our All-Church retreat March 1-3, at Camp Solgahachia, just north of Morrilton. The theme this year is Ora et Labora, and we’ll be focusing on prayer and the various ways we pray. We’ll also have tons of fun being together. This is the weekend of the Little Rock Marathon, so there will be no services at 2BC that weekend. We want EVERYONE to be able to join us for the retreat. You can register here for the retreat and pay here..
During this Advent & Christmas season we will worship together and celebrate the new life brought to us through the birth of Christ.
SUNDAYS AT 10:30 AM
All through the month of December we will celebrate the season of Advent in morning worship as we anticipate the birth of Christ. If you are looking for a church home or just want to get a feel for worship here at Second, this would be a wonderful time to visit. Childcare is provided for children birth-preK.

Salvation Army Bell Ringing
No doubt you're familiar with the bell-ringing sound outside of stores during the holiday season. Every year Second Baptist volunteers hundreds of hours to ringing bells for our wonderful ministry partner The Salvation Army. If you'd like to know more please contact Jim Maloch at email@example.com, or check back here soon for a link to sign up online.
Years ago 2BC bought shoes for a young boy in need who would eventually grow up to be a businessman. After his death, he left an endowment to 2BC to purchase clothes and shoes for kids in need. On December 2nd, 2BC will meet at Target on University at 8am to help MLK Elementary families shop for Christmas gifts. 2BC provides the funds and you provide the shopping expertise. If you’d like to help, please contact Stasia Burk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
