Healthy Boundaries 101, 8:30am – 4:30pm
This training provides an ethical and theological understanding of healthy boundaries, as well as practical acknowledgement of the arenas that are often challenging for those in ministry, specifically exploring the complex roles and situation of ministry in a thoughtful and reflective way. It will give the opportunity to share experiences, respond to situations through interactive discussions, receive resources and provide time for individual reflection.
Training on Healthy Boundaries is open to anyone who wishes to attend. Please register by August 24, if possible. All credentialed leaders of Atlantic Coast Conference will be required to attend this training.
For more information on the training and registration, visit the Healthy Boundaries website.

Annual Assembly Celebration, 9am – 3:30 pm
Join to help us celebrate 40 years of ACC, 1978 – 2018. We’ll remember the people and projects that helped define ACC in the past, consider where we are today, and think creatively about what the future might hold for our future together. Register below.
The day will also feature the collection of two ACC Fall projects:
- the Nickels for Neighbors project encourages kids to collect spare change to support a ministry of an ACC congregation. This year we’re supporting Manhattan Mennonite Fellowship’s Radical Living Youth Garden. Visit http://atlanticcoastconference.net/n4n/ for more info and bring a check or your collected coins on Saturday morning!
- the MCC Grocery Box collection sends much needed food relief to local communities. Share this video in your congregation, and contact the conference office for boxes to fill. An MCC truck will be available in the morning to collect filled boxes.
