I want to highlight a few things for you this week.
1. Flamingo season is here, and during this October fundraiser run by our EDGE Youth, you can send a flock of plastic flamingos to a friend's front lawn! Consider supporting our teens and sharing the fun with your friends and neighbours! Click here to fill out the form and get flocking!
3. Trunk or Treat is happening on Saturday Oct 31st, and this is a way that we as a Church can bless our community, and bring attention to God instead of the enemy on Haloween. If you'd like to volunteer or donate candy, please contact us or drop off your donations at the church on Sunday morning.
4. Konnect Kids will be happening each Sunday morning for the month of November! Let us know your thoughts and reactions to that by replying to this email!

Last Sunday's Message 

It seems like our world is obsessed with competition, and it easily bleeds into our lives and relationships. It can also begin to take over our connections in the church. Sometimes we look around at other people and begin to compare ourselves to them, either thinking they are better or worse than us, and we begin to track imaginary points on each other to see who is most valuable. But, that's not how the church is supposed to function, that's not what the church is about.

What We Learned:
Galatians 3:23-4:7
No one's keeping score, all we care about is following Jesus.

Reminder Phrase:
Same Team

Here are a few points of celebration, or "Wins" from this past week:
1. We got the wireless microphone to work without any horrible interference and noise!
2. We rearanged the chairs in the sanctuary to allow more bubbles into our services!
3. I had a very simple conversation with someone about serving as a volunteer here at AWC and without hesitation they said, "Yes." What an incredible church!

What's Happening

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 cannot 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.

Did you know that you can do church wherever you are? We put together special content each week so you can do church at home! We will be updating things on Sunday Sept 13th to make them even better for church at home (or as we call them, Mobile-Sites)! You can find our videos here!

Register for On-Site Services
If you'd like to attend AWC on-site (live in-person on Sunday), you can register ahead of time by clicking here, (you will also see all of our safety measures and instructions listed there) or you can call us or show up on Sunday and register there. We have limited seating available due to COVID-19 so seating is provided in a first-come-first-serve basis. 

Mobile Sites
If you'd like to continue doing church where you are, in your home or someone else's home, and would like to become an offical AWC-Mobile Site to receive extra support and resources, click here to register!

Konnect Kids Online
If you've got kids, or grandkids, neices or nephews, and you'd like them to grow in faith, character and wisdom, you might want to check out our online resources for kids! Since we can't effectively do in-person kids events every week, we are trying to put together high quality online resources each week.
Check out our Konnect Kids facebook page!

We are starting back up our Thursday Prayer & Fasting time. We encourage everyone to take Thursday at noon to fast and pray. You can join us on facebook Live on our AWC facebook page Thursdays at noon sharp too!
