2017 August 20 Announcements

We will be collecting for the Gateway Woods Children’s Home for the month of August.  As you know many lives are touched by this ministry.

For those who went to Jamaica on the Bible class trip and ordered a deaf can t-shirt, they are in the women's coat room.

In an effort to provide continued teaching while encouraging fellowship within the brotherhood, ACCFS is planning to host our first Marriage Conference this fall. Cultivating connections will be held in Gridley on Oct 28th from 8:30-3:00. All are welcome to attend. There is limited space available so pre-registration is needed by phone or website. Registration is now open via e-mail, website, and social media.

HarvestCall has recently produced a new resource called Missionary Support Card Packs.  Each pack includes a card with a photo and contact information for each missionary/missionary family serving in the field.  The intent is for these to facilitate prayer and relational support for our missionaries.  Anyone is welcome to take one and they are in the back hall.

We plan to have a series of ACCFS presentations this fall. The first one will be this coming Wednesday evening at the Fellowship Hall. Bro. Arlen Miller will be teaching about Spiritual maturity: growing from milk to meat. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend. It will start at our regular time of 7:30pm.

There is a pie sign-up sheet in the back hall for the Heart House METAMORA ice cream social. Pies need to be delivered on Friday, August 25 by 12 noon. If you have any questions, please call Sis. Gretchen Zimmerman @ 309-258-3596. Thank you!

There will be a Gospel sing/Ice cream social August 26th at 6:00 p.m. at Bro. Barry & Sis. Joyce Kloter's house.  Becky & Rhonda and their families from Bluffton plan to be there and there will be soft serve ice cream for all. Bring your own lawn chairs.  Please come and invite someone to come with you!

Bro. Duane Freidinger’s mother, Evelyn Gibson, passed away early Friday morning after a brief illness.  Visitation will be Tuesday, August 22 from 6-8 pm at the Rux Funeral Home in Galva, IL.  Funeral will be at 11 am Wednesday at the Grace United Methodist Church, also in Galva.  Please lift Bro. Duane and the entire family up in prayer during this time.

The conference recordings are now available on AC Central. These recordings do not include the moderators comments, prayers or singing. If you would like to listen to the entire conference there are cd sets at the information center or you can contact Bro. Jeff Grimm for a link to listen on your phone or computer. We will plan to focus on one talk per week starting next Sunday.
