I'm going to just get right to it.  We have put together a strategy for how AWC will function during this pandmic long-term, and though it may change (and hopefully there will positive things happen that change what we expect the regulations to look like) we want to give you as much information as early as possible.

You can access the Summary Slides Here.
You can access the Audio Explanation Here.
Or, You can watch our Video with both the slides and the audio Here.

Sunday's Message 

The Word of God isn't always fun to read, and something has some very hard things to face in it. Ezekiel faced an incedible challenge as a prophet of God, but it has incredible meaning for us today who also deal with incredible pain.

What We Learned:
Ezekiel 24:15-22
Your pain has a purpose, but it might be for you or it might be for someone else.

Reminder Phrase:
Pain & Purpose

Listen to our messages on our website, on SoundCloud, through our ChurchLink App, and as a Podcast on iTunes!

Essential 7

Here are the 7 things that we feel are the most influential ministries/projects we can be engaged in:

2. Small Groups & Micro Groups (email me for details)
3. Friday Night Teen Events
4. Konnect Kids Online
5. Daily Prayer Times (Including Prayer and Fasting Thursday)
6. Serve Your Community (Neighbours Helping Neighbours, Thank You Essential Workers, Windows of Thanksgiving, etc.)
7. Amherst LIVE

Food Bank
If you'd like to make a donation to the food bank, we're obviously not the place to drop it off at. You can actually drop any donations for the food bank off at the Cumberland County Museum.

After the School Bell
The pantry is open in the Mall Wednesday and Friday 10am-12!

Even though things are getting weird, and financial pressures are mounting, I know that many of you have committed to tithe, give to missions, or would like to continue supporting the Church as best you can. Find Ways to Give

Annual Business Meeting Report
Our Board met with approval from our district office to set the budget and review our annual business report. You can find a copy of the report here. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reply to this email or contact one of our board members.


Here are a few points of celebration, or "Wins" from this past week:
1. Our team is running full steam ahead in adapting to this pandemic and to how we need to change to best serve our community!
2. Our Small Groups are getting stronger and stronger! It is exciting to here how they are connecting and growing!
3. The renovations to the church are getting closer to completion, which will make our future events more accessible and create a better use of the building!

Prayer & Fasting

Please join us Thursday at noon as we pray and fast from our own homes
Between 11:30am and 1pm join us as we pray for our church and for God's Kingdom to affect Amherst, and for COVID-19 to be stopped and the miracle of healing to touch our world!
