Today’s Sermon: Separating the Sheep from the Goats

Good Sabbath afternoon! This morning’s sermon by our beloved Reverend Harry Johns III is titled “On Separating the Sheep from the Goats”. It is now available in this video as well as on our YouTube page.

This powerful, moving, call-to-action sermon about genuinely loving, welcoming, and caring for those with the very least among us is a beautiful, meaningful message to hear this Thanksgiving season. If you have less than an hour’s time to be Spiritually fed today, we ask that you please prayerfully consider investing that time in today’s sermon.

“The Lord bless you and keep you; The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace, now and forevermore, amen.” – The Blessing from Reverend Johns to All of Us

A Cartoon of Parables for Your Children

This week’s sermon from Reverend Harry Johns III was titled “The Parable of the Pounds”. We hope that all of you who attended our in-person or online Service were Spiritually fed, enlightened, encouraged, and inspired by it!

There is a very nice cartoon series on Amazon Prime, which is free for AP members to watch, titled “The Animated New Testament”. Among many other stories of our Blessed Savior this series shares is the one based upon the parable from the sermon. To learn more about it, or to watch it, just click this link

Watching this episode with your children this week is a great way to keep the message of the sermon alive and growing in your family’s life! Another good idea to keep your family’s faith growing is to set aside time each week to watch an episode from this series, and then have a fun little discussion about it.

We hope that you have a fantastic week full of Living the Love of Christ and putting the talents that our Amazing, Awesome God has given you to work in this world!

A Million Beautiful Dreams

Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” The Words of Christ (Matthew 19:14 RSV)

Recently the choir and some teachers at a middle school in our county did an absolutely wonderful job of singing and creating a video for the song A Million Dreams! It can be enjoyed in the video in this post.

We are so proud and pleased to say that three of the children in this video attend, and are such a great part of, our Church! One of these young ladies sings the opening few lines. All three (and a few more of their siblings) share their beautiful musical talents here at APC.

We are so grateful to God for not only the three APC girls mentioned, but every child and teacher in this video. Their beautiful, God honoring dreams can certainly come true! How blessed these children are to have these teachers to help guide them to achieve these worthy, blessed dreams! How blessed we all are to have such dreamers among us! These children already are making the world a better place!

This video is a remarkable example of why children are so precious to God and this world.
