As you know, every year our Association takes an offering in May to help us do missions in our area and around the world. This yearâ€™s Acts 1:8/Calvin Durrence offering will take place this Sunday, May 15th. If that date does not work for your church, please consider scheduling the offering to be taken on another date. Remember, this offering will not be used to pay for utilities or salaries. One hundred percent will be used to help us reach our community and world for Jesus! Funding supports (but not limited to) the following: Prison Ministry, Local Church Planting and Church Revitalization Missionary Support (not Associational Missionary), Mercy Clinic, Student Ministry, Christian Learning Center (Montgomery County and Vidalia High School), First Choice Georgia (Rachelâ€™s House) Pregnancy Resource Clinic, Dream Center, missionaries Keith Horne and Nathan Ammons. If your church chooses not to participate in this yearâ€™s offering, please feel free to contribute through our safe website by pasting the following link http://bit.ly/1itJOfQ in your browser and give as the Lord leads you to do so.
During the month of May, we will be collecting rolls of paper towels and toilet tissue to be used by our (soon to open) Transitional Center ministry. Please bring all donations to our Ailey office. To discover additional ways you can partner with our Association in reaching our community, state, and world for Jesus please go to http://bit.ly/1pdc2Sr by pasting it in your web browser.
