UPCOMING EVENTS

 

  • NEW ANTIOCH APP FOR SMART PHONES –  On Easter Sunday we announced that we have developed a new app for smartphones for Antioch.  This app will allow you to do lots of things straight from your phone: watch the live services; check out the different ministry opportunities for everyone from kids through senior adults; watch or listen to past sermons; check the calendar for upcoming events with links to RSVP or ask questions; receive push notifications from the church about important information such as cancellations or changes in services or events.  The app is available for both Apple and Android phones.  Go to your app store and search for “Antioch Conway” or click the following link:  http://get.theapp.co/308d/ .
  • MEMORIAL WEEKEND PICNIC –  The annual Memorial Weekend church-wide picnic will be Sunday evening, May 24th, at 5:30 PM at the Conway Human Development Center Pavilion.  The church will provide the meat, buns, drinks and paper goods.  Everyone else will bring the condiments, side dishes and desserts.  Make plans now to join us.

ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • LADIES BIBLE STUDY –  The Ladies Bible Study group led by Toya Aultman has begun the study, “What Love Is” by Kelly Minter.  This is a 7 week study that began Wednesday, March 25th.  The letters of 1, 2, & 3 John were written to encourage followers of Jesus to remain faithful to the truth. Believers are challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness. This study reveals not only the heart of John but also the heart of Jesus. The class meets  from 6:30pm to 8pm at the former Natural Resource Center, now the 110 Building, across the street from the church.  Childcare is available at the church.  Books are $14 and are available in the class.  To sign up for the class, contact Toya Aultman at toya@conwaycorp.net or Dawn Moore at dmoorestuff@yahoo.com.
  • A second study that will be available is “Breathe” by Priscilla Shirer.  This is a 5 week study that began on Tuesday, March 31st and Wednesday, April 1st.  One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to stop and cease from all activities and busyness and just breathe.  We are in bondage to busyness.  We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us.  We  miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing.  By neglecting the time for tranquility, serenity and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts.  It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God.  In the Old Testament, God instituted principles and laws that would transform the Israelites’ mindset.  He didn’t just want them to be legally free; He wanted them to walk in the freedom and enjoy it.  So God gave them many gifts, including boundaries in which to enjoy those gifts.  Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today.  If you are weary, worn out and exhausted, the concept of Sabbath will change your life.  Session times are Tuesday mornings from 10:00 to 11:00 AM in the parlor, Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 PM in the parlor, and Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:00 PM in the 110 Building across Middle Road from the main building.  Childcare is available on Wednesday evenings only.  Books are $11.  To sign up or for more information, contact Dawn Moore 501-269-1210 or dmoorestuff@yahoo.com.
