It was such a privilege last week to hear from those that just returned on Missions trips from Africa, Haiti and Singapore. Thank you Chris, Samantha and Michelle for letting God use you in those countries and for encouraging and challenging us as a church. Again, there are two more ACC Missions trips coming up; our son Derek is leading a trip to Fiji in May (church construction) and then Clay and Jeannine (Casa De Luz) are heading to Mexico in July. If you are interested in going, please connect with these people.
This Sunday we want to finish up our series on the book of 1 Peter. I hope that you have been enjoying it and learning lots. This week we are going to look at how Peter describes ‘living the dynamic life’ that God has invited us to share in.
Next week is Palm Sunday (April 9th) and we will also be having communion together….always a special time. Sunday April 16th is Easter Sunday, again, always a highlight at ACC. Jesus Christ is Risen..He is risen indeed !! If you are interested in water baptism on Easter Sunday, please sign up on a Connection Card or if you want your baby/child dedicated, please do the same. We will also be having a Chocolate Egg Hunt for the kids..lots of exciting things happening at ACC.
See you on Sunday,
Pastor Glenn and Cheryl
