Check the APCH calendar to see which Bible studies are currently offered. Many options and opportunities!
The April numbers came in with an income shortfall against both expenses and budget. At EUR35,000, income fell EUR 7,000 short of expenses for the month of April. Year to date for the four months, this brings the aggregate shortfall to almost EUR 50,000 with expenses on budget for the year but income falling notably short. There are some factors which explain this such as donations to the BBB renovation & expansion project reducing general tithing and high December income resulting in lower January pledges but the fact remains that we are falling short on income. So while council is doing their utmost to watch our expenses and to plan the expense development throughout the year, we ask you to pray for continued provision for APCH.
|SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER RECRUITMENT
Did you know that there is a thriving children's ministry that goes on, on the floor above you eachSunday? Every week, APCH opens its doors to welcome between 80-100 children to join in learning about Christ's love for them. We already have a wonderful roster of committed teachers and assistants who not only spend time teaching these children on Sunday, but also preparing amazing lessons that reach these children for Christ.
We have some openings! The Children's Ministry is in need of some more wonderful, committed Christians who are willing to help teach and assist the children of APCH as they learn about our amazing God.
For those who didn't sign-up yet, you can sign up for teaching next year by following this link.
Thank you so much for supporting the Children's ministry at APCH!
