His Servants Update . . . 


Ephesians 2:10  "For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good

works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."

If you or someone you know is in need, please let

us know.

              Even in the midst of chaos we are blessed with peace in our hearts that can only come from our Lord! 

            We know there are many prople that are still distancing from friends, families, and communities. We know there are still needs in the lives of many.  If there is something that your church family can do for you please let a commity member know.  If there are other needs in the community please also let the members know.

God Bless, Ali

If you know of anyone who is in need at this time, please let any one of his know. Thank you.

The Work Goes On…..

Even though our churches are open, we know it is still not possible for some to attend. If you are able, please continue to support our churches as you are able.  With the uncertain financial situation and employment issues some will not be able to continue as in the past.  For those in more fortunate positions, maybe you can increase a little so we all make it thru this pandemic.

“So we do not focus on what is seen, but on what is unseen.

For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

2 Corinthians 4:18


God blessed us with temps in the 70’s, low humidity, faithful speakers, delicious food, wonderful fellowship, and the ability to have morning and evening services outside in God’s beautiful country.

$11,000 was raised during the Silent Auction and the Wednesday night offering. Due to the current 2020 cancellations of retreats, 90% of the money will be used for general needs at the ARC and 10% will be sent to the Abels’ ministries: Paul & Becky Abel in Brazil and Matthew and Ednay Abel in Paraguay.

Thank you for all you do for the ARC!  You are a Blessing!

FYI - The ARC is not just for AFLC Retreats/Conference/gatherings. People and groups of all sorts have met at the ARC. Family reunions, Scrapbooking groups, Band camps, College clubs, Bible studies, Quilt and Craft groups, Recovery groups, Athletic groups. Some groups stay overnight, some for a couple hours. ~ All you have to do is call the ARC for availability and pricing. Let them know how many will be there, when and how long your stay is, what kind of rooms you need (sleeping, meeting, gym), and if you will be getting meals there or bringing your own food (kitchen available in some buildings). There is also a link on their website to view floor plans for lodging. Whether you prefer a rustic tent area, a camper area with hookups, dorm style rooms, motel-type rooms, or a house. Most buildings are handicap accessible.
