Vision

Even though we aren't able to do things like we used to, we can still celebrate and worship together! Technology has made it possible for us to do things like no other time in history. For example, we will be celebrating a baptism this Sunday On-SIte at AWC, but next week that baptism will be shared on our AWC-Online service! The baptism will go forward and we will be able to celebrate even if we are seperated! 
However, all this only becomes effective if we are putting the effort in personally. We need to engage with the celebration, we need to connect with others, in-person or online. Let's celebrate!

Last Sunday's Message 



In our world of online content and social media, it has become natural for us to express ourselves by how we interact with videos, memes, audio clips, and subscriptions. We like content, we follow content and we share content. When it comes to our faith, shouldn't that be an even more serious reality? If we like, follow and share cat videos, shouldn't we do the same with the truth about Jesus?

What We Learned:
Matthew 28:18-20
If you like it and are already a follower, it's definitely time to share it.

Reminder Phrase:
Share It

Wins 

Here are a few points of celebration, or "Wins" from this past week:
1. Plans are moving forward with the assumption that we will be permitted to hold Trunk-or-Treat this year! If you'd like to provide a decorated trunk, let us know! (we will be doing everything with physical distancing and outdoors on the afternoon of Oct 31).
2. As we continue to expand our teams and empower more volunteers to do more and have a greater impact we are seeing people embrace the challenges and say, "Yes!" to the opportunities! Actually, they seem to be more eager to serve than I even expected!
3. The community's interest in CR is growing, and we have been able to share infromation about the program with several organizations, including government run organizations!

What's Happening

Celbrate Recovery (NEW)
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. 
Click here to fill out the form and get flocking!

Alpha
Mondays at 7pm starting Oct 5th! Register here!
This is for anyone looking to learn more about the basics of Christianity. This is intended for those who aren't yet followers of Jesus and it is designed to be a safe enviornment for anyone who is at all curious about Christianity! If you're already a follower of Jesus, you can attend if you bring someone who hasn't decided to follow Jesus yet.

AWC-Online
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!
