Vision

I have a bunch of updates for you today!
1. Don't forget about Trunk-or-Treat this Saturday from 2-4pm. If you'd like to volunteer or donate candy or provide a trunk, please let us know!

2. Remember, the time changes Saturday night, we are going to two Sunday services, 9:30am and 11am, and we are relaunching Kids Ministry at 11am!

3. Pastor Linda and I have been chatting over the past few months and she feels that it is time for her to fully retire and step down as the department head of our Seniors Ministry, and as the Pastor of Seniors (Emeritus). She will continue to lead her small group (Seniors Bible Study) but feels she needs to step back from all other responsibilities. Linda has served with great honour and distinction and can step back from these ministries knowing that she has honoured Christ and made a significant impact on those at AWC and in the community. This change is effective immediately, and in order to honour her wishes and allow her the space she is seeking I ask that all questions and needs that go beyond her Small Group should be directed towards Pastor Evan, Pastor Jamin or Pastor Sheryl. This is not because Linda has run into any conflict with anyone, and she has no negative feelings towards any that she has served. She is simply in the place where she feels she needs to step back from her responsibilities.
Thank you Linda for all you have done here at AWC over the years. Welcome to the world of being "just a volunteer!"

Last Sunday's Message 



If you have any gardening experience you know that when you plant a carrot seed you get carrots, and when you plant cucumber seeds you get cucumbers. You don't get apples from a celery seed, and you don't get celery from an apple seed (that would just be horrible). Likewise, the habits and actions we plant in our lives produce a matching result. Bad habits produce bad consequences, and good habits produce good consequences.

What We Learned:
Galatians 6:7
You get what you plant, so only plant the good stuff.

Reminder Phrase:
Good Seeds

Wins 

Here are a few points of celebration, or "Wins" from this past week:
1. Michael shared that one of the youth participated in prayer a while ago and was able to see a tangible answer to that prayer in her life!
2. It looks like we will be able to serve our fellow believers in our community even when their church has faced the hard situation of closing. I hope we can be a good place for them to grow.
3. Celebrate Recovery, with little to no advertising, continues to impact people and grow in numbers and reach!
 

What's Happening

Konnect Kids
We are launching Konnect Kids again! Kids ages 2-12 can join the fun on Sundays on-site at AWC at 11am! Parents can register their kids when they register for the worship service!

Celbrate Recovery 
The God of the Bible, The Father Son & Holy Spirit are THE higher power – the only one that can be in control.
Only 1/3 of people who attend Celebrate Recovery (CR) do so because of a chemical addiction, the rest are hurts and hang ups. Hurts: abuse, emotional, physical and sexual. Hang-ups: bitterness, anger, trust, do not measure up Habits: behaviours and addictions
You don’t need to hit rock bottom before starting recovery. The 8 principles are based on the beatitudes and the 12 steps flow out of the principles. Join us Tuesday nights, the doors open at 6:15 pm (starts at 6:30). Masks are required and physical distancing will be observed. You can register HERE or call the church at 902 667 9126.

Flamingo Season is Here
When you flock someone, flamingos will be placed on their lawn for 24 hours. (You must personally know this person.) 
These flamingos will be placed with a message from you to the target. The message will include what the event is, how long the Flamingos will be there, your name, as well as a personal message from you.
The money raised will be going to the youth ministry at the Amherst Wesleyan Church.
