STAFF PHOTO JASON IVESTER Pauline Wight of Rogers sings with others during a seminar of the history of Primitive Baptist churches in Northwest Arkansas. The June 21 event was hosted by Little Flock Primitive Baptist Church where the 90-year-old Wight attends. Members of her husband’s family were among the founders of the church.

"Our hope and peace rest in the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary," said Carl Staten, elder of Little Flock Primitive Baptist Church. "He did not make salvation a possibility or probability, but a reality and sure to all for who it is ordained. ... Our Lord said it best, 'It is finished!'"
