News & Announcements

HELLO AFCON FAMILY & FRIENDS!

 

It is on this day we celebrate the birth of our nation and remember our commitment to truth, justice and equality for all.

We love this country and are grateful to God for blessing us with her.  May we be good stewards of that which has been entrusted to us and seek the Lord's blessings, leading and guidance in the days that are in front of us.


"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."

 

 

There are two services that are available this weekend at AFCON:

 

Drive In Service

July 4th - CANCELLED

6:00 PM - This week's Drive-In service has been cancelled.

 

In-door Services

July 5th (Sunday):

 

8:30 AM - Also a service of worship, prayers, and praise asking

our Lord for healing, direction, and thanks for our country.

 

10:45 AM - We will have Randy and Marli Brown with us leading in prayers, praise and petition for God's help as we celebrate our nation's birthday.
 

 

Each service is open to any and all persons.  But each service will have an emphasis.

 

Our safety protocols for each service:

 

1.   The first service would be for the elderly (say 60'ish and above) and the immune compromised.  In this service, masks, social distancing, and precautions are mandatory.  There will be no nursery or children's church.  Seating will be every other pew.  And the folks you drove in with will be the folks you sit with.  Dismissal will be by pew via ushers, like we do for Good Friday service.  The first service would be more traditional, as we do now.  The music would be hymns and piano.

 

2. The second service will also exercise restraint.  We also have pre-school and Jr church.   Worship would be the band and more contemporary.  We also use every other pew for sitting.

 

 

In all the services the practice is as follows.

 

3.  No greeters.  The temptation to shake hands and hug necks,  just too high.

 

4.  We clean every door knob and surface in between services.  We will have to have designated cleaners.  I have held Lysol wipes in reserve for "such a time as this" for our church body.

 

5.  No offering plate passing.  We encourage online giving and there will be our offering box on a table in the foyer.with a designated watchful eye on it.

 

6.  No greeting time or passing the peace in the services until further notice.

 

7. Doors will remain open where ever possible which encourages a lack of touching surfaces.

 

8. Even outside doors will remain open to facilitate fresh air exchange.  This will give fresh air and give folks less of a confined feeling.

 

9.   We have hand sanitation stations, free masks, and free gloves throughout the church and foyer.

 

10.  Socializing should be done outside while social distancing.

 

11.  Any and all of the above are subject to change.

 

12.  Finally, and this is very important, we do not engage in political rhetoric, disparaging remarks or even demeaning looks.  We place the emphasis on unity, acceptance and the Bond of Christ.  The Bible says, "Honor one another above yourselves."  That is what Christians are supposed to do.
