Topeka church keeps strong Arkansas connection

In June 2005 a mission team from Arkansas landed at Covenant Baptist Church, Topeka, Kan., giving the church a much-needed boost of encouragement.

Lone Rock Baptist Church is located in a national forest south of Mountain Home, Ark. Its location may be remote, but that has not stopped the church from having a far-reaching influence.

Starting in 2006, members of Covenant joined Lone Rock on its annual mission trip. The two churches have served together in numerous places in Kansas, including Greensburg, Independence, Overland Park and at Webster Conference Center, Salina. Covenant then went to Arkansas to help Lone Rock build a new worship center and fellowship hall. The new facility was dedicated in November 2012.
