Father's Day is Sunday. A blessing on your home of all you fathers as you continue to be the man God has called you to be. Have a gread day, Dads.


This fall we will have a couple of mini-conferences for men and women leaders. Two will be in the OH/MI area. On Friday evening, Sept. 30, Ned will meet with us at Harvest Christian Church. Saturday morning, Oct. 1, he will meet with us at Grace Church in Toledo, OH. This is the second year we have done this and they were very well received. We hope you can join us for one or both! 


Oct 14-15 there will be a mini-conference in the MN/WI area. The location is still to be determined but all are invited.

Next year's annual conference will be April 20-21, 2012. It's hard to think that far ahead, but unless we save the date something will interfere.




Speaking of calendars - see the one at the end of the newsletter! 

Vision Letter from Ned Berube:
"First Things First"  


Dear friends,


During our last ARC conference in April, we met as the MMC (Missions and Ministry Council) and came to this sense of the direction of the Holy Spirit----to take a long view of the next ten years and intentionally focus on the deposit we believe that we have been given from the Lord. There are 5 central areas that we believe we must reiterate and recapture so that we can be faithful to pass on this deposit to the coming generation. These 5 areas are:

  • Worship
  • Community
  • Outreach
  • Marriage and Family
  • Leadership Development
