FOR OUR FAMILIES WITH YOUNG CHILDREN: If your little one needs to “get up and move” a little during the service, we have a live video feed of the service in the fellowship hall so that you can still hear the service.
ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL – Have you tried it? Kris Hauswirth is leading the young adult Sunday School class through the book of Mark. Stephen Bloom is leading the general adult Sunday School class through the Gospel of John. It will be an adventure! Our schedule for EASTER MORNING WORSHIP this year is 8:30 & 10:45 AM morning worship and Sunday School for 2 yr. olds through 12th grade at 9:45 AM. Adults will have fellowship time during the Sunday School hour.
How are you doing at WELCOMING folks? Join the effort by using the sign-up sheet (located at the Welcome Desk and often passed around adult Sunday School classes) …and by INTRODUCING YOURSELF to those around you.
Plan to join us on Easter Sunday at 4:30 PM to help the residents at PLEASANT VIEW HOME SERVICE celebrate Easter! This is a great opportunity to share love and encouragement with the residents, and to help with the singing during the service.
Our VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL is heading to ATHENS for a Greek adventure June 3 – 6! We are looking for volunteers to assist with crafts, games, snacks and lesson time. If you would be interested in helping in any way, please contact Pastor Steve Stepec.
A PARENT INFO MEETING for parents of students entering 7th grade through graduating seniors will be held Wednesday, May 8 at 6:30 PM. This meeting is to connect with youth leaders, other parents, to be informed and offer feedback. Please plan to join us! PREPARING TO WORSHIP: If you would like to listen to the songs in preparation for Sunday morning, Pastor Steve Stepec has been posting a playlist with song titles and artists, as well as a Spotify list for Sunday morning worship on our ACEFC Facebook page each week. Spotify accounts are free to sign up for, or use whatever media you prefer.
CHURCH OFFICE HOURS: Karen’s office hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10:00 AM-3:00 PM. Announcements for the bulletin and PowerPoint should be in the church office by Friday noon.
COMMUNITY HELPING HANDS UPDATE: For the 1st time in 5 years, Helping Hands went into 2019 with no debt, thanks to your generous donations. During 2018, with your support, Helping Hands served 251 households consisting of 487 individuals! We are looking forward this summer to expanding our outreach with fresh produce, donated by those who garden and are looking for a used refrigerator to store eggs, milk and produce. Please remember to bring your garage sale/household items to us as we use the sale of these items buy food and to pay utilities and property insurance. Thank you again for all you do for Community Helping Hands.
