2016 May 15 Announcements

We had a very nice evening last night at the singing for the home. Thanks to everyone who attended and a special thanks to the leaders and their families for faithfully being there.

We plan to have testimonies for Carly Hartman and Wyatt Rocke on Wednesday, May 18th starting at 7pm and Baptisms on Sunday, May 22nd.  Bro. Mark Streitmatter plans to be with us.

There will be singing at El Paso Healthcare this Saturday at 7pm.

The Silver Lining recently featured a special article section about mothers. Now we want to focus on our fathers. You are encouraged to contribute. The topic is: How did your father demonstrate spiritual leadership? Please send your contributions (length: no more than 600 words) answering that question to editor@acsilverlining.org by Jun. 20, 2016. For questions or assistance, contact Katy Frantz at frantz.katy@gmail.com  Please consider helping to make this upcoming section of the Silver Lining a blessing to fathers and the entire brotherhood.

The Church Establishment /Assistance Committee (CEC / CAC) is piloting a Travelling VBS program this summer. The idea is to bring VBS to small churches to not only bless the church but to try to expose the local neighborhoods to our church. With the ultimate goal to spread God's message and grow the small church.  We are looking for 3-4 volunteers to put on VBS at the St. Louis Church, July 18 through 22nd. Accommodations will likely be provided by the local brethren. The St. Louis church has more kids under 10, than it has members and it would be a great blessing to have VBS. If successful, the program maybe expanded next year to include other small churches. Please prayerfully consider supporting the CEC and the St. Louis church this summer.
If interested please contact either:  Brother Joe Tabor: joe.tabor.80@gmail.com or Brother Chad Leman at cleman78@gmail.com

There is a change this year for our VBS…it will not be the first week of June.  It will be held the first week of August (Aug. 1-5).

We rejoice with Bro. Fritz & Sis. Amy Hinrichsen as they were blessed with a baby boy named Rylen Fritz on May 8th.
