Stay up to date!
From Sunday:

Maybe you've encountered people who want to accuse you and "throw rocks" at you, but that's not God. God's never going to throw rocks at you or try to push you down. God loves you and wants to empower you to live and love like Jesus.
Maybe you've made some mistakes, maybe you've done some things you're not proud of, or maybe you've been hurt by someone who threw rocks at you. Today is your day to let go of that hurt and open your heart to God's love and forgiveness. In God and Jesus, there is no condemnation. Receive His love, receive His grace, and be empowered to live and Love like Jesus.

En Agape',  
Rev. Michael Weeks

The ACES Senior Rides program continues to grow.  We need volunteer drivers to help seniors in the central Hanover County area who are unable to drive and need rides to medical appointments, the grocery store or for personal business. Our drivers use their own vehicles and choose the rides to fit their schedule (we ask that our drivers try to give at least 4 rides per month). ACES reimburse the drivers 25 cents per mile. We also provide insurance and pay for volunteer driving training. 
We are also looking for a coordinator(s) for the program. This (these) individual(s) will receive the calls from the riders and input the rides into a database. Training will be provided.  Please contact us at 804-543-6115 or via email.

    As always, thank you for your support.
