This past weekend was filled with blessings. We had a wonderful International Lord's Supper Service, with an abundance of great dishes from different countries.
We even dressed to reflect various nations!
The singles had a super time with brothers from the Bridgepoint and Path churches in Atlanta, who came and hung out. Activities included a Sat. night devo.
Here are some of the Bridgepoint and Path guys at church on Sunday.
And here are some of our young people having a blast!
Meanwhile, several of our campus members enjoyed a campus retreat in Ocoee, TN. Here are some ATCC people who attended the retreat.
And here is everyone who came from the state Alabama to the retreat!
"The biggest impact was the total refueling effect on my time with God," said Ethan Mobley, "giving me more motivation, and support knowing that 'the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same thing.'"
It was a rich weekend. We thank God for all He gives us!
