ACC @ CBC November 17, 2013




Hello everyone,

I am looking forward to Sunday as we gather together again. Gregg will be leading the singing and worship and its also Missions Sunday. Someone said to me a few weeks ago…shouldn`t it be missions Sunday at Alderbrook every Sunday…..I like their thinking and couldn’t agree more. This Sunday we want to highlight a great ministry and outreach in our city called the Cyrus Centre. It is our privilege to have Les Talvio with us sharing about the incredible ministry to broken and needy teenagers in our city. At Alderbrook we cook meals once a month for the Cyrus Centre…and on Friday Nov 22nd at Sieberts at 7:30pm you are welcome to participate!

This Sunday I will be continuing our series called “My Story…Living the Story You Want To Tell“. I know that last week got a little graphic huh…if you were away just read through Genesis 38 and you`ll find out why…but what a reminder that God can take any situation (no matter how raunchy) and bring His story of mercy and grace. This Sunday we continue the series with a message called, “When your story takes a turn`. Its easy to tell your story when everything in life is going well, but what happens when life takes a turn.

Just remember that Heather Ryan will have some great baking available (that is going to missions); we ran out last week because it was so good…and ACC loves food and missions.

Also we will be receiving a second offering to support our six missionaries in their outreach: the Kotyks, McLaurens, Rathjens, Sawatsky`s, Potts and Bakers. We are so privileged to have these six couples connected to ACC. Remember Kris and Paulette as they will be returning from Sri Lanka this week.

See you on Sunday.

ps remember that Sunday Nov 24th is Souper Sunday!!

MY Story: Living The Story You Want To Tell

Every day our lives tell a story. In fact, every one of us has a story to tell. Often people know who we are by what we do and what we say. The decisions that we make on a daily basis all determine and make up our life story. How is your life story being told?

* Kids Zone Updates

For all the families that come early to church we will now have a movie playing prior to the service. The movie will play from 8:45-9:55AM in the Green Room for all the kids that need something to do while their parents are helping on the music team, set-up, or whatever it may be.
Our children’s ministry is has been doing a quarter drive for the month of November. Last Sunday we raise $57 with just the baked goods that were sold. If you enjoyed them last week they will be available again this Sunday so bring your quarters.  All the money that is raise will be going to help feed children around the world. The Quarter Drive for International Children’s Day will continue until the end of November. Keep collecting those quarters! 25 cents can give a child a nutritious meal.
This Sunday the kids will be hearing the parable about the prodigal son. A very familiar parable with so much truth in it. Ask your child this Sunday what they learned from the story of the prodigal son.
