Preparing the way

Matthew 3:1-12

To enter into the Kingdom of God and into Kingdom reality, we must first prepare by repenting.

Pastor Cristobal Tong

For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah when he said,
“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the Lord;
make his paths straight.’”
— Matthew 3:3

New Sunday School Class:
The Foundation of Prayer
 

This 6-week class will be taught as a prayer workshop. Rather than studying prayer, the class will engage in the work of building intimacy with God through prayer. We’ll be using Robert Waldron’s, “15 Days of Prayer with Henri Nouwen”, discussing one chapter each of the 8 weeks. Three things each participant will gain from this class include: 

  1. A new perspective on prayer

  2. New approaches to maintaining a regular practice of prayer

  3. A renewed desire to know and walk with God

Date: January 27-March 3
Time: 10 am
Location: NYCAC, Room 4B
Instructor: Erika Siu

Call for Baptism / Transfer of Membership: April 21

This year's Baptism and Transfer of Membership ceremony will be held on Easter Sunday, April 21. If you're interested in getting baptized or transferring your church membership, classes will begin in March 2019. 

 
 
Please join us as we look to be a blessing to our community and continue to lift those who are in need up in prayer.

3Stone/NYCAC will be serving as an anchor site to host Rescue Alliance's annual "Don't Walk By" citywide homeless outreach. Each anchor site will serve a hot meal, provide clothing, shelter assistance and medical care among other services to our guests. 

We are looking for 3Stone volunteers to participate so we can offer a hospitable and loving environment to our brothers and sisters at Rescue Alliance, other partner organizations and most importantly, the local homeless community. 

NYCAC will host on Feb 23, 2019

There will be an outreach every Saturday of February hosted by different churches. You are encouraged to join those efforts as well.
