      Alton Bay Christian Conference Center

This past week has been a quiet week around the office as we have had a number of our people on vacation, but it has been a busy week as we are preparing for a senior staff retreat in a few weeks. Yesterday, we spent the day working on getting ourselves prepared for that time. Please keep us in your prayers as we are spending October 2 & 3 away from the office focusing on the vision and mission of ACGC and strategic planning on our focus in our departments.

News from Iglesia de la Gracia Divina Church, Arleta, California

“Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple,
and breaking bread from house to house,
they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart”
(Acts 2:46 NASB).

Fellowship in the early church was a characteristic of the Jewish community that followed the true Messiah, our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. Every day, from house to house, they shared the truth of the gospel with the blessing of breaking bread and gathering at the time of the meals. It was at the houses that they spent most of their time learning to know each other and to help one to another in the beginning of their new faith.

Phase Guides

If you have kids, I bet someone in your life has commented to you, “don’t worry, it’s just a phase.” It’s true. Kids grow and change at a rapid pace making it hard to keep up. As soon as you think you have a handle on today, tomorrow comes and brings its own set of challenges.

“Phase Guides are an 18-part series of concise and interactive journal-style books that simplify what parents need to know about each phase of a kid’s life and give them the opportunity to discover more about their children — so they can make the most of every phase.
