Highlights From The Annual Business Meeting

Posted by: Pastor Keith Smith

Here are some highlights from last Sunday’s Annual Business Meeting:

  • There was a strong ratification vote for our three new Deacons: Charmaine Francis, Rafael Pimentel, and Sherrol Shand.  We ended the meeting by praying over our new Deacon Board as the new Deacons join Rohan Appadurai, Phillip Chamberlain, Manny Colucci, Angel Morales, Joel Smith and Gladson Thomas, who continue to serve their term.  It was moving to see some of those who served as Deacons over 20 years ago join us for this prayer.
  • We expressed well deserved gratitude to our two retiring Deacons who have served APC and Jesus so well: Deborah Sinnatamby and Mark Varvas.
  • We thanked the Lord for the faithfulness of God’s people this past year - it was another record-breaking year of giving.  We are able to pay down a good amount of our loan for the Student Ministries wing, and our missions giving was up again, in 2014.
  • Rohan Appadurai gave a report on behalf of the Deacon Board, covering some of the areas they are working on, including a Sabbatical Policy for the Senior Pastor.
  • Staff who have served over ten years were honoured, including three who have served for over 25 years.

We ended the meeting by humbly giving God glory for all He has done.  We committed ourselves to be praying and unified as we continue on in this Year of Invitation.

Countdown To Easter

Posted by: Pastor Keith Smith

So far in this Year of Invitation, we’ve been praying for

       1) God to prepare the people we will be inviting

       2) Opportunities to invite

Invite to what?  The centerpiece of our Invitation opportunities will be our:

       1) Good Friday and Easter Services

       2) An Outreach series that will begin at our Easter services

So we’re now in a countdown to Easter weekend.  Today, I’m beginning a series that will equip us as we invite.  Here are some titles:

     “Starting Conversations About Jesus”

     “Can Prayer Change Someone’s Free-Will?”

     “Setting The Table (for Others)”

     “How Jesus Handles No Shows”

Continue praying for people and opportunities, as well as these upcoming services.
