Spring Creek Missionary Baptist Church in Springdale recently celebrated its 160th anniversary. The church sanctuary — which remains in use today — “was built on a rise above the creek in 1889,” a church history reads.

"I tell them every Sunday, 'God is great, and we still need him as much as we ever did,'" said Jimmy Tollison, pastor of Spring Creek Missionary Baptist Church in Springdale.
