Ron Kruger Name Interim Pastor for Springtown
and Siloam Springs
If you were not at Springtown on Sabbath, January 6, you may have missed the announcement that Ron Kruger has been asked by the Arkansas-Louisiana Conference to serve as the interim pastor at both Springtown and Siloam Springs until a full-time replacement has been found. Friends to many, Ron & Sharon lived and worked in the Gentry community in years past. Many know them from their work at Ozark Adventist School, Ozark Adventist Academy and other capacities. They have retired in Northwest Arkansas. Ron & Sharon will be worshipping with Springtown on Sabbath, January 20. If you haven't had the chance to meet them yet -- make sure to say "hello" and make them feel even more welcome!

God or Mammon?
There's a good chance you've not used the word "mammon" in a sentence recently. It simply means "material wealth or possessions especially as having a debasing influence" according to Webster. Grab your quarterly or log onto www.ssnet.org this week for your personal study.
