Hey Actonites, can anyone help with this?

Wondering how to support survivors? Helpmate needs air mattresses (with pumps, clean, sans leaks and any size) to distribute to our clients that are moving into their new, safe homes.

[05/26/19]   Action with and for those who suffer is the concrete expression of a compassionate life and the final criterion of being a Christian. Such acts do not stand beside the moments of prayer and worship but are themselves such moments. - Nouwen, Henri J.M.

Come worship with us today @ 11 am. Then keep on worshiping with us the whole week through.


Easter is not over. It has only just begun! Join us at 11 am as we continue celebrating resurrection and begin to experience the Acts of the Spirit. 04/25/2019

Not able to make it church for Easter? Listen to Pastor Rennie's resurrection sermon here: Main point The resurrection of Jesus is not an opportunity for us to unravel the mystery of life and death. Instead, it is a reality for us to experience with amazement and faith because of what it means for our lives and that of the whole world.   Photo by Bruno van der Kraan on Unsplash
