Hello everyone,

I hope you had a great week.

I can hardly wait until we get together at church this Sunday!! The past few weeks at ACC have been incredible as we have started into our fall season. It has been an exciting “Launch” and a great start this September.

I have so enjoyed and been inspired by the worship that our teams have been leading us over the past number of weeks. There is such an incredible presence of God as the musicians play…thank you for directing our eyes and hearts towards Jesus every single week. One of the thinhgs I love to see happens five minutes before the service starts, when the musicians stand in a circle on a platform in unified and concerted prayer….wow!! This Sunday Frank Sawatzky and the musicians will be preparing another great set of songs to draw us into the presence of God.

Would you remember to pray for our ACC missionaries today? The Potts family has landed in Zambia and I’m sure are experiencing many different changes for the whole family. Dave and Phyllis Rathjen leave this weekend for Romania. Would you be praying for strength, health and great annointing over their ministry and outreach. In fact, would you remember all of our missionaries in prayer today…Lorri and Randy Sawatzky, Dave and Shirley McLauren, Kris and Paulette Baker and Sheldon and Julie Kotyk. The Bible reminds us to pray, support and encourage those who are giving their lives in fulltime outreach and ministry.

This Sunday we continue our series titled, “Not A Fan”. Last weekend after church, Kris Baker and I headed down the I5 to Seattle to catch the Seahawks/Forty-Niners game. It was loud…I had my earplugs in the whole game. I didn’t sit down either…everyone stands. I don’t know why I paid for a ticket fo a “Seat”, when I should have just been charged to “Stand”. No worries…I had a blast. But again I was reminded…I was just a fan…the real game was happening down on the field. Its the same in our faith with Jesus Christ and the church…I can easily sit (or stand) in the audience and clap and cheer..but God wants us to put on the uniform and get down onto the playing field as we endeavor to reach people for Christ.

See you this Sunday where we will learn from the Bible about God’s incredible plan for those that “follow and want to be a disciple” of Jesus.

See you Sunday,

Pastor Glenn and Cheryl

 Sermon: Not a Fan …completely, committed, follower

Fan: an enthusiastic admirer. An intense observer.

In the Bible Jesus was never too interested in fans. He didn’t have time for those who jumped on and off the bandwagon of faith.

How do you view your relationship with Jesus Christ? What type of a follower are you? Join us for this next series as we look at how to

become a follower…not just a fan!!
