Several years ago we decided to set aside Pentecost Sunday as a day to share about the ARC. As this day celebrates the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the church we believe this is appropriate. This year we are preparing a short video we encourage you to share with you congregation on this Sunday (or the Sunday on either side of Pentecost - June 12). We are also asking each church to take up a special offering to aid the work of the ARC as it cares for pastors/leaders, overseas church plants, and cares for missionaries around the world. This is one way of sharing with our people the values of the ARC and what our commitments to one another mean. If you need more information on the ARC go to our ARC web site.
