In last week’s E-News, we encouraged you to save the date August 9 – 13 for the 2020 Triennial Convention at Great Wolf Lodge here in Concord, N.C. This proves to be a great convention for our leaders to come together and bring their families. Working with the Great Wolf Lodge, we were able to negotiate a better price on rooms, but have to pay for the meeting areas – so although your registration is higher, the overall cost is the same or maybe a little lower. We’re hoping that leaders will take this opportunity to bring their families to the Triennial to build relationships and celebrate who we are as a denomination together.

“Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon” (Isaiah 58:10 NLT).
“God has given us two hands – one to receive with and the other to give with” (Billy Graham).
Every human needs three basic things: food, shelter and clothes. But if they don’t have anything in this world, they will look for help from others. They might be physically or mentally challenged. A percentage of people in our Mission State does not often get daily food to eat and water to drink. They are very much poor and needy.
There will be a Men’s Retreat at Lakeside Advent Christian Campground Friday and Saturday, October 4 and 5 from 5 p.m. – 5 p.m. The theme will be Living in Christian Community: Exploring the Impact of the Biblical One Anothers. This will be a time of worship, prayer and biblical application to daily Christian living. Mr. Micah Bickford, Rev. Russell Carle, Rev. David W. Davis, Mr. Ben Redman and Mr. Greg Walton will be the featured speakers and worship will be led by Mr. Dean Neal. There is no charge for this event, but a love offering will be taken to defray any costs. View the flyer here. Please RSVP with Rev. David W. Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
