We are excited that Isaac Dennis, who came to the ATCC this summer to work as an intern, has decided to stay and be a part of our ministry! Here is Isaac's story, in his own words --
"This summer has been a time of faith building, challenges, and growth. I decided to come to Auburn for the summer on an internship, while also hoping to find a job to possibly stay.
Being down here, I had to learn to really find my own in how I viewed my talents and gifts. Also I learned to see that how no matter who I am I can make a huge impact. Doing so allowed me to trust God more in myself, and more importantly, in him, which allowed me to do everything I have experienced this summer, from helping me study the Bible, to leading different lessons or bible talks, and seeing him answer different prayers.
God has worked tremendously through me, and for me, whereas he allowed me to get a job at The Hotel at Auburn University. With doing so, I’m able to stay down here and meet the different needs down here, be a light to the town of Auburn, Tuskegee and the surrounding areas, and just help build relationships.
The question now, is what are my dreams for the Auburn Tuskegee Christian Church? First, to see the campus ministry continue to strive and flourish on their respected campuses. Secondly, to help the connection of the singles between here and Atlanta grow and flourish. Finally, that the disciples of Auburn Tuskegee Christian Church continue to love and have an impact on everyone they meet so that others can come to find Christ.
It’s been an awesome summer and can’t wait to see what else God has in store."
1st Troy Service on Aug. 5th!
Pike County Lake
The members of our Montgomery and Enterprise House Churches will hold a joint service in Troy for the first time on Sunday, August 5. This city is a great fit for the two house churches. It is halfway in between Montgomery and Enterprise.
The service is slated to be held at the Pike Country Lake facilities, which include a lodge, fishing areas and hiking trails. Those who attend will enjoy a picnic lunch after the service, and then stay and play all afternoon!
The leader of the Gump House Church, Tre Wright, works in Troy. "I have a bunch of coworkers who live in Troy," said Tre. "I hope to have several coworkers study God's word and become a part of the Enterprise group."
Marc Roe, who heads Enterprise's "Wiregrass" church, will give the lesson at the service. "My hope is that we can find some people interested God’s message in the Troy community," he said. "We want to do a little more just to keep spreading God's kingdom and get a foothold in each of these towns down here."
Troy is a good place to get a foothold. The fast growing city has a population of almost 20,000, and is the home of Troy University, Alabama's third largest university.
Pray for this service to be a success! Those of us in the Auburn/Opelika/Tuskegee area will be attending our own house church service at the VFW, but we can participate by praying, and even by telling people we know in Troy area about it.
In the end, one of the best things about the day will be a great opportunity for building community among the central Alabama disciples. "The goal is to have fellowship between Montgomery and Enterprise," said Tre.
This week's homework: read through chapter 23 in the book of Exodus.
