Bring a CHANGE for LIFE!
There are two water jugs in the lobby that the youth are using to collect change to go towards their trip to the LIFE national youth conference in July 2019. We are having a COMPETITION between the MEN & the WOMEN in our church to see which will donate the MOST change! So, start saving your coins, bring them in, and put them in the designated jar. The winning group will be recognized at the end of the competition! 
 
 "Bigger and Better Fundraiser!”

Each youth and youth leader has been given a paper clip, and the idea  is for each person to trade that paper clip for something bigger or better. They will continue trading each item that they get for something bigger or better. This will continue until the competition ends. At that time, the items they end up with will be auctioned off, and all the proceeds will go towards the leaders and students LIFE Conference Fund. Please consider helping by trading them for something bigger or better! Many of the youth & leaders are posting their items for trade on their Facebook and Instagram pages, so be sure to check for them and help them out!

We will be participating in the “Livestream Prayer & Praise” event on Wednesday October 24th, from 7:00-8:30 pm in the worship center. Join Dr. John Stumbo, Rev. Jonathan Schaffer, Rev. Andrew Hawkins, and the Alliance Board of Directors for this event, hosted by The Village Church in Fort Myers, Florida. The entire Alliance family is invited to participate online. Don’t miss this important gathering of praise, intercession, and spiritual transformation!
