Haiti Collection - We are collecting gently used items for the children at the Renault sunday school program which the Yordys have been actively supporting. Renault is one of the poorest slums of Les Cayes, Haiti, and every Sunday, God’s word is shared with 1000-1200 children. These are the following items needed, if you would like to donate:
- Boys & Girls summer clothing, size 3 mo - 16 (big kids)
- Shoes- sandles, dress shoes, flip flops, gym shoes all sizes from toddler to adult
- Book bags or messenger bags all sizes
Please bring these items May 31 -June 14 and place them in the boxes at the east and west entrances. This is a great way to get the kids involved and boxes will be available during VBS week. If you have any questions ask Sis. Gina Luginbuhl. The items will be packed up and sent on the sea container to Haiti this summer.
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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
“As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” Galatians6:10

Let’s keep them in our prayers as God continues to work in their lives and guide them through this time of transition.
