OUR HISTORY

In 1991, Pastor Bill and Peggy Fitzhugh heard the call of God to begin Family Church in their home in White Hall, AR. That first Sunday, 12 people met and a church was launched. Pastor Bill and Mrs. Peggy faithfully served Family Church as Senior Pastors for over 23 years, touching the lives of thousands of people in Jefferson County and every county that touches it. On January 19, 2014, Pastor Bill and Mrs. Peggy retired as Senior Pastors and Pastor Stephen and Haley Harrison became Senior Pastors.  Pastor Bill continued to serve as an elder at Family Church where he is greatly loved and respected. He went to Heaven to be with Jesus October 12, 2014.  He and Mrs. Peggy have been and continue to be great examples of loving God, loving people, and making disciples of Christ.  They truly began a legacy that continues to reach thousands for Christ.

The Early Years

After outgrowing Pastor Bill and Peggy's home, Family Church moved to White Hall City Hall.  From there, the church met in Moody Elementary Cafeteria, White Hall Jr. High Band room, the Trotline Fish Restaurant, and even in tent services.  After outgrowing these facilities, Family Church spent a few years in Cranford Funeral Home.


After continued growth, Family Church bought land on Hwy 104 in 1996 and moved to the church location on 104 in 1997.  The church thrived, entered into two more building phases, and now meets in 60,000+ square feet of space in three services, reaching approximately 2,000 people weekly.  


Pastor Bill Fitzhugh had the vision for multi-campuses and in 2009 Family Church bought land in Redfield.  Family Church launched it's second campus in Redfield on January 31, 2016 with 160 people on the launch team.
