Welcome to Robert Lyons

We welcome our new pastor, Robert Lyons to Waldron UMC. Robert is a native Arkansan who moved here from El Dorado where he served as pastor of Jack Mayfield Memorial UMC at Huttig, Arkansas.

Robert received a B.S.E. from Ouachita University and a M. Divinity from Southern Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

After serving as a pastor for 10 years in other churches, Robert was appointed to the Arkansas Conference of the United Methodist Church. In addition to his pastoral duties, he is also finishing a twenty-year career in marketing and sales.

Robert is the proud father of two children, Jennifer Hart of Sallisaw, Oklahoma and Robert Lyons, Jr. of North Little Rock. He is also the very proud grandfather of three beautiful granddaughters, Katie, Karlee Jo and Karaline Hart. We are also pleased to welcome Robert's mother, Etta "Mama" Lyons.

Robert's first Sunday with us will be July 1. He looks forward to his appointment to Waldron UMC and to ministering to the community. Please join us in welcoming Robert and "Mama" to Waldron by worshiping with us this Sunday and we invite you to remain following the worship service for a potluck dinner in the Fellowship Hall.
