Vision

First, congratulations to Jamin and Naomi Melanson on the birth of their son Caleb! I am told mom and baby are healthy and doing well!

Second, we still need more trunks and more candy for Trunk-or-Treat this year. Would you consider bringing your vehicle and decorating the trunk, supplying 100 pieces of candy, or volunteering to stand at one of our trunks and serve our community?

Third, on November 1st we will be moving to TWO MORNING SERVICES. That's right, our numbers have come up enough with our current restrictions that we need to begin running two worship services on-site so we don't have to turn people away. We are also relaunching our on-site kids ministry, Konnect Kids on Nov 1st! 

So, beginning Sunday Nov 1st our services will be: 9:30am Worship, and 11:00am Worship & Konnect Kids. If you aren't bringing kids please consider attenting the 9:30am Worship.

Last Sunday's Message 



It seems quite obvious that if you want something to be salty, you need to add salt. If you want apples, you need an apple tree. But we often forget that in order to have the fruit of the Spirit, we need the Spirit. And we absolutely do need the Spirit.

What We Learned:
Galatians 5
If you don't have the fruit, you need more Spirit.

Reminder Phrase:
Got Fruit?

Here are a few points of celebration, or "Wins" from this past week:
1. Jamin and Naomi have welcomed little Caleb into their world!
2. Plans are coming together for some upgrades to the Worship Team with some added technology!
3. Michael Gregory has announced that he has accepted a full-time position working with Youth for Christ! He begins partner development right away, but will be with us in his current position until the end of June 2021.
 

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. 
Click here to fill out the form and get flocking!

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!
