Marshall Seventh-day Adventist Church

A Brief History of Marshall, Arkansas

The Work Begins

In 1951, Elder Lee J. Meidinger, district pastor, reported that a branch Sabbath school at Marshall had started meeting, with a membership of twenty-five (Record, 1951).

Marshall Church Organized in 1997

In May 1997, the Marshall group made a request to become a conference church (Minutes, 1997). A group of members from the Marshall church formed a trust and purchased property on Highway 27 North and Main Street in May 2000. In 2003, the property, which consisted of the church building and a house on the adjoining property which was used for a Community Service building, was transferred to the Arkansas Conference Association (Woolsey, 2003). The house on the adjoining property was sold in June 2006 (McCormick, 2006).
