The Woman at the Well Bible Quiz answer
My brother and sisters,
Antioch never ceases to amaze me. Every time I think we have reached the heights, Antioch goes even higher. First, let me express my sincere gratitude for all the ways you made my Second Pastoral Anniversary special. My wife, Lisa, my daughter, Ashley, and my grandsons were given the royal treatment, not just on one day but throughout the month, and even now. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
If you were unable to view the Town Hall hosted by members of our COVID-19 Task Force, find it on our Facebook page and watch. We were given solid information by our own members who are not only well-qualified in the medical and public health fields but saved and sanctified. They provided answers to a lot of questions and cleared up a lot of misinformation that has been circulating.
AUMI was instrumental in bringing vaccinations to our community through a partnership with Northside Hospital. In our Fellowship Hall, we were able to provide both the first and second shots of the Pfizer vaccine. AUMI had already established an historic partnership with CORE to provide COVID-19 testing in our community, and the ministry continues to feed people on a daily basis, house and assist people in leaving behind lives of addiction, and mentor our youth so that their potential can become a reality.
Our members continue to make history as they make the world better. Our in-residence artist, Bro. Marcus E. Bishop, Jr.’s show in Lenox Mall was the first of its kind. Bro. Julius Thomas is fighting injustice and systemic oppression with “prayer, positivity and persistence” in his position on the Executive Board of The People’s Uprising and Chairman of the Young Atlanta Leaders.
Members have continued to experience increased health and fitness—and weight loss—through the 40-Day Turnup and 40-Day Journey sponsored by my friend, Rev. Joseph Williams, pastor of Salem Bible Church. Our GriefShare Ministry continues to help people whose loved ones have passed move through the journey of grief with compassion and spiritual support. Our ministries continue to blossom, finding new ways to reach out to our membership to facilitate continued growth in the four pillars of our church: fellowship, evangelism, doctrine, and stewardship. We are socially safe, not socially distant!
Although nothing is as good as physically being together in worship, our services on Sunday mornings bring us together in a marvelous way as our deacons and their families lead us in devotion, members of all ages and in locations as far always as China read us the announcements and our musical aggregations lift us together in praise. Sunday school, Wednesday Night Bible Study, Thursday night Christian Education classes, morning devotions, and noonday services keep us growing spiritually. I miss our gatherings, as I expressed in Clergy Conversations on Friday, March 26th, with my brother in the Lord and our son, Rev. Ken Jelks on Mount Tabor’s Facebook Live. I look forward to the time when we can all get together and enjoy the renovations in lighting and sound in our beloved Antioch facility, the pillar of light on the corner of Northside Dr and Cameron M. Alexander Blvd. What a time, what a time, what a time!
Yours in God's Service,
Rev. K. L. Alexander, Pastor
