Triennial Convention Preview: Brian Aaby
If you’re not aware of it yet, in June, the Advent Christian General Conference will be having its Triennial Convention. Every three years, Advent Christians from around the world gather to learn, grow and seek the Lord, as we discuss where he may be leading us in the future. If you’re a frequent reader of the E-News, you have likely already read about this gathering on June 24 through 28. If not, you may have received an ad in the mail or stumbled upon our convention website.
FunShop participants trying a science experiment object lesson
Vacation Bible School excitement was high this past weekend, as several people gathered at Dulin’s Grove AC Church in Charlotte, North Carolina to take part in Group’s VBS FunShop for their 2017 Passport to Peru Cross-Cultural VBS program! Representatives from several churches from various denominations in the greater Charlotte area participated in this event co-hosted by ACGC and Dulin’s Grove.
Visiting students from Lancaster Bible College
I feel like lately I’ve begun my E-News articles the same way … with something along the lines of: “one of the things about my job that I’m really excited about.” Well, this week is no different. Last week I had the opportunity to do a part of my job that makes me really excited. I had the opportunity to spend my time visiting with college students on campus to hear what God is doing in their lives and to learn how we may be able to help them move forward toward where God is leading them.
Summer Ministries Exchange – Deadline Approaching
We’re officially a month away from the application deadline for students to join this year’s installment of the Summer Ministries Exchange Program. This program, geared at college students and young adults, provides participants with the opportunity to be ministers of the gospel in camps and churches around the country. Students who participate have the opportunity to serve as camp counselors, VBS leaders, bible teachers and in many other ways as they travel from place to place throughout the summer.
Over the last few months, ACGC and our AC Church here in Charlotte, Dulin’s Grove Church, have had a unique opportunity present itself. In partnership with Group Publishing, we have the opportunity to co-host a VBS FunShop. For a long time, many AC churches have used Group’s VBS material to serve children in their churches and communities through exciting and creative Vacation Bible School programming. Group’s VBS material, in fact, has become some of the premier VBS material available.
