It is so true that when you are young, the summers seem to last forever. Today is September 1, 2015 and about 28 C. So it feels still like summer but in a few days, our kids will be back in school. After a long summer, I admit, I look forward to routine again. It is great to relax and catch up on rest, but I enjoy a good day’s work as well. So, I hope that with everything coming up this fall, you are looking forward to getting back into the routine of church life. We are going to have a special series called, NOT a FAN! It is all about rediscovering what it means to be a follower of Jesus and not simply a fan. This series will take us into November with a Baptism service and Membership Sunday. It will all start with a special Movie presentation…stay tuned! Perhaps you have not been baptized or not a member. This could be your opportunity to be a part of something large. We hope that you’ll be a part of our wonderful growing church.

Would you continue to pray for the staff and our church? There is always something going on and prayer is something we all value at ALCC. Prayer is the key to so many things but over the last season, I have been asking God in prayer for wisdom. God is so gracious. He helps us with decisions, choices and so much more if we are willing to simply ask. That is my desire looking into the fall…I would live a life filled with the wisdom of God. Remember, if you have any need or simply desire someone to pray with you, we are here to serve. Praying with you! PB and Kathy “The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out” (Proverbs 20:5). Every person was born with purpose. That’s right, even those people we shake our heads at and seem aimless. Even you. You were born with purpose. You were made in the image of God Almighty (Genesis 1:27); wonderfully and fearfully (Psalm 139:14). You can discover your purpose or completely miss out in the Abundant Life that God calls you to. You have the Holy Spirit who lives in you (2 Timothy 1:14). He guards, influences and gives you insight into the purpose for your life (Ephesians 1:17). You are able to find peace and courage when you know who lives in you and who walks with you, every step of the way; God Almighty, your God (Romans 15:13). So, “11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. 13 You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 19:1113). What to live out your purpose? Seek Him with all your heart and you’ll surely find what you’re looking for. Your purpose is deep and amazing, I pray you'd draw from it. May we be people of His purpose! Tony Mejia

Welcome! We are glad you are here, and we trust that are feeling at HOME. It is our hope and prayer that you will join in as we share our lives and celebration of faith together. We believe our life is about discovering who God is, using this faith to live out His purpose and His plan and to live it with passion. We call ALCC our HOME. We are intentional about relationships with God and each other to bring the message of HOPE to our community.

WE BELIEVE the Bible is true, inspired by the Holy Spirit WE BELIEVE there is one God, the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. WE BELIEVE in the virgin birth. That Jesus is the only Savior of the world. He lived, died, rose from the dead, ascended to heaven and He is coming back. WE BELIEVE that we can’t do it on our own. We need God and each other to live a healthy and happy life. We are here to love, accept and encourage those who God brings into our lives our church, and to show everyone God’s unconditional and everlasting love. WE BELIEVE in holy living. Everyday we aim make good and right choices that lead to a life pleasing to God. Jesus is our perfect example of loving God, yourself and your neighbor. WE BELIEVE that Jesus is Lord. Baptism is a symbol of our faith in Jesus Christ and demonstrates our desire to live a life pleasing to God in our words, deeds and actions.
