We are already well into July. Summer is passing so quickly. We hope that you are taking time to enjoy your families and friends. Don't forget to add the following items to you calendar/to do list.


You should have received this information in a previous email. Choosing to error on the side of over-kill here it is again.


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, in Elyria, OH. Saturday morning, Oct. 1, he will meet with us at Turning Point Church in Findlay, 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.


There will be another conference in the Tampa, FL area sometime in Jan/Feb. As soon as the date is established we will let you know.

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.



By the way, you are welcome to attend more than one!


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

Vision Letter from Ned Berube:
"20/20 Vision -  Community" 


Dear friends,


When we were together last April at the ARC conference, we believe we heard from the Spirit regarding the direction of the ARC for the next 10 years. We're certainly open to adjustment as the years pass, but this will be the focus that will move us forward. We are going to engage 5 main areas that are central to healthy church mission and disciple-making. At the risk of redundancy, the 5 areas areWorshipCommunityOutreachFamily Life and Leadership Development.


This first year we will focus on worship, more on the personal devotion of the individual believer rather than corporate worship. The Fall and Winter mini-conferences will emphasize this crucial piece. However, month by month I will address any of these 5 areas. This month I'd like to have you think with me regarding Community.
