Sanctity of Life Sunday

Yesterday was “Sanctity of Life” Sunday at AWC.  We shared an awesome video from “Be A Voice”.  ‘From the formation of a child’s first tiny cell to life’s final breath, all life has dignity and value because each and every one of us is made in the image of God. And that is why when we talk about being “pro-life,” it’s not just about a political issue. It’s a world view…it’s a life-view. It’s a way of looking at each human life that transcends culture, class, race, age and opinion.’   May we indeed view every life as beautifully unique, formed in His image and deeply loved by Him — and by us!  Have an awesome week!


Made New

The Wesleyan Church released a new video last week...share it with your friends and invite them to join us at AWC!  We are made NEW in Jesus Christ!

Happy 2014!

Today was the first Sunday of the new year...what will 2014 bring?  Deuteronomy 11:12 says "The eyes of the Lord your God are always on [the land], from the beginning of the year to the very end of the year." We don't know what tomorrow will hold, but we know who holds the future...His eyes will be upon us if we are faithful to Him from January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014! Yes, God's faithful care will extend to every day of the new year...isn't that an amazing promise for us to claim in 2014!  "Great is Thy faithfulness...."

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve!  Start your Christmas by coming to our Candlelight Service at 6 pm where you will be meeting the Innkeeper!    Wasn't it awesome to hear the kids sing "Emmanuel" at the Sunday School Christmas Program and also yesterday morning during the worship service?  Emmanuel....God with us!   I love my devotions this morning..."Just as Jesus came to bring the presence of God into our world (Emmanuel...God with us), so too we are called to bring His presence into our world...this Christmas, we can give the gift of God's likeness through us.  When our lives reflect the God who lives in us, we can be different from the world, and the difference can bless others with the transforming presence of His love and grace."  (ODB)  Look forward to seeing you tomorrow night!
