STUDENT MINISTRIES SUMMER RECAP
Thank you, church family, for your participation in our fundraising efforts. Whether you purchased a KACC cup or made a scholarship donation, we were able to raise over $3,000! Because of this, we were able to help a number of students, including 10 brand new attendees. CIY (Christ in Youth) challenged our students to be Kingdom Workers. Our students had an opportunity to live out this challenge while volunteering at VBS. Thank you for your continued prayers and generous giving that supports our ministry as we strive to proclaim Christ to students.

In August, we are partnering with BuildOn, an organization that builds schools in developing nations. Every 6 check-ins on facebook will provide one brick to build a school. BuildOn has built more than 1,000 schools in seven countries around the world. This month, as kids in our community head back to school, let’s check-in at kacc and help build a school in Nicaragua.

Sunday, August 20
Every summer KACC sets aside a special day to be baptized at the beach, and this year it is Sunday, August 20 at 4 pm. It will not only be a great time outdoors in the sun but more importantly, you will get to bask in the love of the Risen Son as you follow His command to identify with Him in baptism according to Matthew 28:19. We encourage you to invite your family and friends to be part of this special day where you step up to follow Jesus. We’ll have printed invitations for you to invite them.
We are planning to meet in front of the Bayshore Playground, just west of the pier. The address is 5415 E. Ocean Blvd, Long Beach. Park in the lot on Ocean Blvd, and then walk up 54th St. to the bay side.
If you would like to be baptized on this day, you’ll need to talk to a KACC Pastor first about your faith journey with Jesus. Please fill in your contact information on your Connect Card and turn it in by Sunday, August 13, so they can connect with you about your desire to be baptized. You can also call the church office.
