The Silver Lining  - is preparing a special section in the publication featuring stories of
brethren who have served as non‐combatants in the military. The goal is to share
accounts of God’s faithfulness through challenging times, and remind each other of
this important and biblical teaching which we continue to practice as a brotherhood.
To share your story – or a loved one’s story ‐ please send it to editor@acsilverlining.org
or give it to your Silver Lining correspondent by June 15. May God be glorified as we exhort and encourage one another.

The Health Care Provider Registry (HCPR) - is a database of the health care providers associated with the Apostolic Christian Church of America. This allows the Medical Committee to keep health care providers up to date on the medical activities and opportunities within World Relief. We ask that all health care providers submit their information to the HCPR by going online at www.acworldrelief.org and clicking on the Health Care Provider Registry link.  

Also, we would like to announce that the next Apostolic Christian Medical Fellowship will be in Roanoke, Illinois on Saturday, April 23, 2016. This is an opportunity for health care providers to connect and encourage each other as believers and learn about a range of healthcare topics. Please save the date.

Technology Update on AC Central APP - Several people have had issues with the new sermon streaming app AC Central, especially on iOS devices (iPhones, iPads - Apple products).  It seems to be a problem for live services only.  Archived services are unaffected.  The developers are aware of the problem and have found the issue.  They are currently waiting for final approval from Apple before it can be released into the app store.  It is anticipated this will take 1-2 weeks.  We will let you know when the app has been released into the app store, but at some point you will see an update come through for AC Central to fix this issue.  In the mean time, if you are experiencing issues with the app, please go to our church website to listen to live services (http://www.roanokeacchurch.org/stream.asp).  We apologize for any inconvenience.  There should be no issues or action needed for those listening from an Android device or directly from the website.  If you do have issues, please let Bros. Matt Leman or Byron Gerber know.
