Welcome to Arbor Pointe!

The people of Arbor Pointe Church seek to: 

INVITE people into a relationship with Jesus Christ.
CONNECT with one another to grow in our faith.
REACH beyond the church to love and serve.

THIS SUNDAY WE WILL DEDICATE AND RECOGNIZE THOSE WHO SERVE AND PARTICIPATE AT ARBOR POINTE!
Join us on Sunday at 10:30am for this important step forward at ArborPointe Church.  We are at our best when we are one body, united in purpose, sharing the gifts each of us have been given to further the Kingdom of God.  This is an important time for us and one that we first and foremost want to dedicate to God so that we might be set apart for His purposes inside and outside the walls of the church!
   


We are planning to go to Royston (Robin and Terry’s place, directions attached) this Saturday.  We usually arrive 8:30-9:00 to cut and load and then deliver on our way home.
It is warm now, but that won’t last long.
If you can’t go to Royston, we still have wood stored at Judy’s place on Skelton Road that needs to be split and Hoschton UMC has a tree they want us to cut down.
 
Please advise your interest in being part to this ministry that is truly impacting approx 50 families each year.
 
Thanks
John

Welcome to our newest members Rick & Deb Webb!!
Be sure and extend your welcome to them when you see them on Sunday!
 


Hello everyone!  
We have hit the new year and are in full pursuit of our New Year Revelation!!  

Our Leadership Team will be planning 2017 here at APC on our "Retreat" day as we seek to live out the calling each of us has as individuals and that we have as a unique, imPerFect kind of church that loves people where they are and prays that God moves them into new places that inspire, challenge and grow them deeper in faith. 

The 'Every Person Deeper' philosophy is an important one for us to embrace regardless of where we might find ourselves in our journey.  We are seeking ways to meet the newest of believers or the oldest of our faithful at the place they are and be a resource for all in moving deeper in relationship with our God.  

Our Vision Planning Team will meet on Tuesday, the 17th to begin our conversation on what our future needs to look like as we seek revelation and inspiration in OUR process as a church.  We want a deeper faith for our church at Arbor Pointe as well!!

Pray for us all in this period of discernment and revelation! 
Pray for God to unleash His power in and through this congregation!
Pray that God uses YOU in mighty ways to move hearts for Him!
Pray that in THIS YEAR, we all dedicate and consecrate our lives to the God who loves us.  


It will be an eventful year!



Be blessed and be a blessing!
Mike
