A new ladies Sunday School class is starting August 12th at 9:30 in room 201 upstairs. It is called the “Amazing Collection” which is a video and discussion Bible study taught sequentially book by book. It’s an outstanding study to teach and encourage women in their roles as women, wives, and mothers and covers all 66 books of the bible to get the “big picture”. Both new believers and seasoned students find the study to be life changing...Please contact Peggy Corsello by July 25th so we can order workbooks.

August 12—Promotion Sunday

 As the school year begins, it is time for our kids to move up to their coordinating age/grade level here at church. On this Sunday, our kids are invited to join their new groups. Our Pre-K aged class meets downstairs in room G-04, elementary aged kids meet in the fellowship hall, and our middle and high school group meets in the Teen Center. This includes Sunday School classes as well. Please see Amber Smith, Bruce, or Rick with any questions.

 

A special note for parents of rising Kindergarteners:

Parents, if you bring your children to the 8:15 service, remember that they should come to the back of the sanctuary when indicated by the message on the large screen. It usually is seen just after the offering prayer. Adults will then escort the children downstairs to Recharged. After Recharged, your children will be taken to Sunday School. The kids can be signed out and picked up in the fellowship hall. Parents who come to the 8:15 service are asked to use the clipboard found at the door to the upstairs toddler room to sign their children in.

 

9:30 & 10:30 Service - Parents should bring their children to the fellowship hall Sign Up Table. There, you can check your kids in and also receive information about upcoming events. Your children can be signed out at that same table at the conclusion of the 10:30 service.

Other Announcements

We want to remind you that our leadership team has a special gift for each of our families. We have secured access to RightNow Media, a Netflix-like database of Bible lessons, Christian children's videos, and more! This service is free to Antioch members and families. It can also be given to members of your extended family and your friends and neighbors as well. 

Church members who wish to explore the RightNow library may log-in as a guest using the email address RightNow@antiochcanton.org. The password is "guestguest". You can also check out the library by searching for "RightNow Media" in the App Store. If you like what you see, simply let us know by emailing the church (antiochchristian@gmail.com), and we will send you over a link so that you may create a more personalized account.  


We have a new section on our website to tell you about. This has been added to cut down on the number of emails sent out about things to be given away or sold by our members. Items will be listed here (at the bottom of the “Members” section of our website). Listings will be posted for 2 weeks and then removed. If you have something to give away/sell, please email your request to the church office (antiochchristian@gmail.com), and be sure to include an email address where you can be contacted. Check it out from time to time and see if you can find any treasures!
