SCHOOL SUPPLIES

The Christian Education Ministry Team is 

asking church members to please donate

school supplies again this year for the AHGS. 

A  list of supplies needed is posted on the 

bulletin board and a box with a big yellow 

school bus is under the table to place the 

supplies. When  the box is full it will be taken to 

the school and then filled again.

            A big thank you to everyone who 

supports this important project.

A Bible Reading Program for All Believers

By reading the Psalms, we work on our relationship with God! By reading the Proverbs, we work on our relationship with each other!


On each day of the month, read the corresponding chapter in the book of Proverbs (e.g. today is the 20 of March, and so you would read the 20th chapter of Proverbs). By doing so, in a normal month, you would read through the entire book of Proverbs each month.


On each day of the month, read the corresponding chapter in the book of Psalms, and each 30th chapter as well (e.g. today is March 20, and so you would read the 26th Psalm, and also Psalm 50, 80, 110, 140 – tomorrow- Psalm 21, 51, 81, 111,141) By doing so, you will read the entire book of Psalms each month.

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY

"Shawls . . . made for centuries universal and embracing, symbolic of an unconditionally loving God. They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify." 

Requests for a prayer shawl may be made 

through any member of the congregation or 

through the church office. Each shawl is lifted 

in prayer during a worship service before they 

are taken to those for whom we are praying
