Nickels for Neighbors

ACC congregations are encouraged to collect coins in their Sunday School classes, Bible Studies, or services, primarily as a way to encourage giving among our children. These donations will be collected at ACC’s Annual Assembly on October 26.

The 2019 ACC Nickels For Neighbors grant will be given to the Training Station Preschool in Ocean City, Maryland. The Training Station was established in 1984 as an outreach of CrossWay Church with the goal of providing a loving Christian environment for preschool children. The Training Station offers part-time preschool classes for children from ages 2 through 4 years old. Our motto is based on the scripture “Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6. In this manner we strive to encourage and celebrate each child as an individual with emphasis on helping them discover the joys of learning and playing together with their peers.

The Project: The playground used by the preschool must be removed to allow access to plumbing updates needed underneath the equipment. Several large trees will also be removed. After the work is complete, the playground will be reconstructed and revamped.

The total cost for the construction work and playground improvement will likely rise above $10,000. All money raised will go to cover these costs and make the space available for play.
