VisionCast Retreat 2014 August 22-24
-Visioncast is a critical event in the annual life cycle of AC3. It’s special. I can’t tell you exactly how or why, but God does something special in our church every ministry year, starting with this retreat. Maybe it’s the time away from the grind. Maybe it’s the intimate setting. Maybe it’s the intentionality of those who set aside the time to come. Whatever it is, this special weekend inaugurates a spiritual meme that God carries through the year, it forms friendships that would not have otherwise formed and it energizes us as a church.
This year’s Visioncast began with a special “aha” moment at an elder retreat, where we felt a resonance around this idea: “Why Not Me?” Russell Wilson’s now famous phrase seemed to perfectly encapsulate a challenge to each person at AC3, to put aside every excuse and every obstacle that keeps us from God’s call in our life. I expect great things to be done when we all come together and ask, why not us?
I pray you’ll make the appointment on your calendar now, to experience Visioncast. If you haven’t come before, ask yourself one question: “why not me?” Seriously, why not you? It’s designed for you. It’s affordable. It’s fun. It’s the best “church” going during the Pause! And I believe, God has great things in store for you there. So… why not you?
Download the 2014 VisionCast brochure. When you are ready to register email us with how many then simply complete your VisionCast Survey 2014 for each attender online by August 15th. Or you can call the church office at 360-659-7335 and we can do all of this the old fashioned way with paper and pen!
