Christmas in July! Join us for worship this Sunday, July 22, for a special Christmas in July service.
In an effort to make AGLC the showcase place we want it to be, the Property Committee would like to get your feedback on what we can do to continue to upgrade the property. We would like to have your feedback on
  • what needs to be done now,
  • what would be nice to have in near future, and
  • what would be a great addition to the property.
As you know we have a limited budget, so we may be restricted on what we can do, but we want the list of all your ideas to give us projects to work toward completing. We already know we have the master plan phases, so this is not about buildings but rather upgrades and repairs to the existing property.

Please write your ideas on a sheet of paper and put them in the collection plate or give to Paul Harrington or Tim Draney. We look forward to your feedback.
Blood drive results. Last Sunday was our Tribute to Jim blood drive. Carter BloodCare reports they collected 12 units of blood "which will go a long way in helping to save 36 lives." Thanks to all who donated! 
Trip to the Holy Land. A trip to the Holy Land is being organized for February 2020. We would like to understand who might be interested in going. Please contact Michael or Kathy Humen or sign up at church if you have any interested in joining us. More information will be forthcoming.  
Briarwood Retreat Center. Read about all that's happening in upcoming months at Briarwood in the August issue of The Vine which is available online.
Keep in prayer. Please keep the following people in your prayers: Samantha, Ron, Sandy, Debbie, Alan, Jerry, LaRue, Gary, Pam, Lorraine, Berniece, Buddy, Darla, Piper family, Mishoe family, Wagner/Meinen families, Brenda and Kelly, Joan, Virginia, Lara and Gabe, Sean, Gae, Peters family, Adam, Bria, Troy, Jett, Jillian, Melva, Corbin, D, and Roger.
