A congregational meeting for budget approval is scheduled for Sunday Nov. 3rd following worship.
Patty Thompson, Director of Prayer and Leadership Mobilization from the ECC Midwest Conference, will be a guest speaker this week.
Listen is a prayer initiative that provides an opportunity for participants to hear from God. It begins with a workshop led by Patty Thompson of the ECC Midwest Conference after the regular morning service on October 27, and then continues in small groups that meet once a week for the following six weeks. The approach is contemplative, a slowing down in order to hear God speak, and the outcome is then processed in community. Heather Platt
Planning with ministry team leaders will be Sept 15 – Oct 6. Please contact Ellen Baldacci, treasurer, by Oct 6th if you would like to provide input. A congregational Meeting for budget approval is scheduled for Sunday Nov 3rd following worship. Ellen Baldacci

We hope you are excited to celebrate the 25th Birthday of AWCC together on September 8th, right after church. There will be a catered BBQ lunch, and lots of games that you don’t want to miss. Please look for the Evite in your emails and let us know how many people you will be bringing to this wonderful event. If you know former AWCC families, invite them to the celebration! All the details you need for the prayer walk up the Mesa on Saturday the 7th and the BBQ will be sent to you in the coming weeks. Keep an eye out for those emails and Evites. Several Applewood families have contributed money to pay for this celebration because it is not in the budget. If you would like to help out with this please let Janine Flannigan or Jill Richman know. Looking forward to a great AWCC celebration.
Hello Women of AWCC!
The transition from summer to fall is a natural time to take stock of our commitments to God and each other. As we consider reconnecting or strengthening our connection to other believers, I would like to share the IF:Table blog for the month of August.
IF:Table host Jessica Kim writes about loneliness and reaching out to others. After battling a lonely season of being her mother’s caregiver, Jessica learned that we weren’t meant to live this life alone:
“The world is full of afflictions that distract us from looking upward. Whether it is something that causes us to stumble or pain that makes us turn inward, the body of Christ was created to distribute that weight in journeying together with the goal of restoration.”

To help us connect and get to know each other more fully, we have some fun events on the calendar this fall!
SO — mark your calendar for the evening of Tuesday, September 17thfor a Girls Night Out (GNO) at Blue Moon Brewery in Denver!
They have super ambiance, great food, interesting brews and Little Man Ice cream on the dessert menu! 🙂 Dinner is at 6:30pm — you can meet us there or plan to carpool from church. Please RSVP to me (Carrie Wallace) by Monday 9/16 so that we are sure to get a big enough table for us all.
Blessings to you this week!Carrie Wallace303.550.3209

The Leadership Team Invites YOU to Dive into Discipleship & Prayer (with Links to Resources & Survey)
The Leadership Team invites YOU to dive into discipleship and prayer with the AWCC family this fall. There will be two different study options, both put together by our denomination. “Grow deeper in Christ” covers spiritual disciplines, such as praying scripture and reviewing your day. This guide utilizes Bible study, discussion, shared experiences, personal reflection, and practice. “Crushed olives, enduring light” is a devotional covering men and women of the Bible whose lives were transformed when they were crushed through the press of life’s difficult situations and only faith was able to take them forward. Links to more details on each book are below:
Existing men’s, women’s, and life groups are encouraged to study one of these books together this fall. Connect groups on each book will begin after the morning service on September 15. There will also be a printed roadmap available in the entryway to help you get started if you would like to work through one of the books in a 1-on-1 discipleship relationship. Please think and pray about how you would like to pursue Jesus together this fall. Please take this survey to help the Leadership Team plan Sunday morning Connect Groups and track how folks are getting involved.
The church would like Life Groups and individuals to manage and place their own orders for the “Grow Deeper in Christ” book ($7.95 each) or the print/download of the “Crushed Olives” pdf (free) at the links listed above.
Connect groups on “Grow” and “Crushed Olives” will begin September 15 after Worship with introductions and general organization. The first book or pdf discussions will happen September 22.
Brews and B.S. has a relaxed atmosphere where we can be authentic and share life together. Contact Craig Nelson for more info.
