CHRISTMAS IN OCTOBER

How can your church say thank you to our Advent Christian missionaries? By contributing financially to Christmas in October. Weeks ago, your church should have received the Christmas in October materials by mail. We are now midway through October, but it’s not too late to help us show our gratitude to those who have given of themselves in missionary service.

Superintendent Rick Qualls put together a great day on Friday with reports from most of the directors and coordinators from ACGC.
