APC News for October 2019

October is a busy month here at APC! Several things have happened and are scheduled to happen, all of which edify us and cause our amazing church family to grow stronger and closer – personally and with our marvelous Creator!

In mentioning our church family… We are blessed beyond words to have such a thriving, healthy one. Everyone in our church is an important, integral part of the whole. We lost two such members early this month, our precious Judy Spencer and our beloved Elder, Betty Mohra. They were both so important to us, so treasured, and so missed.

Below is the tribute video that was played at Judy’s service. Her obituary can be read here. Betty’s tribute video isn’t available at this time, but her obituary can be found here.

Sunday, October 06th was a day full of events! We had our monthly Coffee Hour that morning, Communion during our Weekly Service, and then Sound Witness, a bluegrass gospel group, performed a free concert at 6:00 p.m.!

We ordered our new hymnals! The large print ones have arrived and the rest, which will fill our pews, should arrive any day! We are very excited about this! We now have an organist, Wayne Hunter of Linesville, who plays the new hymns for us; this adds such a nice sound and feeling to our Weekly Service! He was born and raised in the Adamsville area, left to serve as a musician in the United States Army for over twenty-years (retiring as a Sergeant First Class in 2010), and moved back home a few years ago. He has been a faithful member of APC since his return. We are so grateful to him for bringing the new hymns to life!

For the past several weeks the Children’s Music Group has been busy learning new songs and dances to share with us! These songs are like the ones they learn in Vacation Bible School. They are so enjoyable! We look very forward to seeing the children present them during a near-future Service!

On October 13th, Reverend Johns started a new Communicants Class for young people who are interested in learning more about our faith, so they can become members of our church! We are excited and happy to share that we currently have six people in this class! We always welcome more. If you or your child age twelve and up are interested, let us know and we’ll be glad to arrange it!

We are preparing for a chili dinner on November 9th! We hope to see you there! More information will be shared soon!

Our Junior Youth Group will be meeting this Sunday, October 20, 2019 right after our Weekly Service. Crafts, a nice lesson, and a snack are planned. We hope to see your child grades Pre-K through sixth there! As with everything we offer, this group is free of charge. You do not have to be a member of APC for your children to participate in the fun!

Did you know that APC has its own quilting club? We’re meeting this coming Monday, October 21, 2019 and welcome any person who is interested to join us! All skill levels are welcome! You can bring your own project or find one at our meeting! We’d enjoy seeing you there!

If you’ve been seeking or hoping to find a welcoming, loving, thriving church family, we invite you to consider visiting us. We welcome everyone and have so much to offer. We hope to see you soon!
