A Word From Our Executive Director - December 17, 2014
On December 11, 2014, your denominational staff in Charlotte, and their spouses, gathered for their annual Christmas Party in the beautifully decorated fellowship hall at the Shiloh Advent Christian Church. Joining us for the evening were former Executive Director Dave Ross, former President of ACGC Brent Ross, and our newly elected President, Steve Lawson. A longtime employee, now retired, Shirley Efird and her husband, Lawrence, were also able to attend as well. The dinner and desserts served and hospitality shown to us contributed to a very special evening. The specialness of the evening was accented by two very generous gifts of which ACGC benefited.

How often are we reminded that this is the season of giving? We are prompted daily by commercials to give great thought to what the perfect gift might be for those on our Christmas gift list. This past week, I have been greatly impressed by what I would call some very special gifts. One such gift was discovered as I visited the Shiloh Advent Christian Church in Monroe, N.C. Around this time, for the last five years, they have been sponsoring what they call a “Day of Sharing” (pictured above, left: Betty Williams, Maxine Cornett, Terri Pittsley and Debbie Tomberlin). For several months the church collects gently used toys, appliances, flatware, dishes, clothing and home décor to be given away to anyone from the community who comes by on that day.

The ACGC campus has been a very busy place this week. The Department of World Outreach hosted a meeting of some of our pastors and church leaders serving urban communities. This strategy session began with a Monday noon luncheon and continued into Tuesday afternoon.

Then, Tuesday morning, 12 pastors gathered for our third ACGC Equip session this year. The Department of Nurture hosts this event and the topic was Strategic Planning. Attendees came from the Charlotte and Lenoir, N.C., area and from Eastern N.C.

From all of us here from your denominational offices in Charlotte, we want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. We realize that not everyone within the Advent Christian family will be observing this festive day, as it is observed in the United States as a national holiday. The gathering together with family and friends, sharing a meal around a table laden with salads, meats and desserts, watching parades and football games are some of the traditional practices associated with this festive observance. Yet, one central ingredient that is often forgotten by the citizens of this nation is true thanks giving.

A Word From Our Executive Director - November 19, 2014
One of the responsibilities that come with the office of Executive Director is to sit at the table as an ex-officio member of several boards throughout the denomination. Just recently, I joined the Board of Trustees of Berkshire Christian College as they assembled in Haverhill, Mass., for their fall board meetings. (Pictured: left to right, back row: Nate Dean, Bob Price, Julie Morse, David Bohy; middle row: Steve Spearing, Tracy Ainsworth, Pam Gardner; front row: Ron Thomas, Lee Welkley, John Guess, Bob Hughes. 

Along with all the business, the Trustees set aside an evening to honor Lois Hutchinson, as she has announced her retirement after serving the college for nearly 27 years.
