In Part 6 of our AC3 DNA series Dan and Rick talk about creating a safe place to seek and ask questions about the gospel if you are a seeker. This is a great topic for all of us AC3ers. Enjoy!

Everybody is a Somebody!

On distribution days at Seeds of Grace, individuals and families are each given numbered tickets when they arrive. Out of necessity, these tickets are randomly drawn from a bowl and the numbers on each ticket are read out loud by a SOG volunteer signaling it’s that person's turn to shop. 

But wouldn't it be nice if we could really get to know and call each SOG client by name? I believe that everyone has a unique story to tell, family and friends who love them, each with God-given talents and a name that is distinctively theirs. Everybody is a ‘Somebody’ and each of us matter to God. The reason we have value is because of what God says about us, not because of what others say about us.

God says, “YOU are my masterpiece. I don’t want you copying somebody else. I’ve put gifts in YOU — heart, abilities, personality, and experiences — and I want you to use them. You’re not just wanted; YOU are needed!” You are needed in your community. You have value to add to this world!

We want to get to know SOG clients and volunteers better which means we will need everyone’s help. On distribution days, we will be providing and asking everyone to wear a name tag; volunteers and clients. Each individual's name tag will also become their SOG ‘Distribution Day Pass’ in the not so distance future. So hold onto your seats and get ready for a ride!

Meet the 'New Kid on the Block' at Seeds of Grace

Hi! As the ‘new kid on the block’ at Seeds of Grace, I’d like to introduce myself. I’m Twila Crain and currently oversee AC3’s children’s ministry known as Kreek Kids. I love encouraging families and recently have felt a call to serve even more families and households through our Seeds of Grace Distribution Center.

I am also the mother of two young men who, along with their wives, also lead at AC3. My supportive husband Tracy (a.k.a. grandpa T) and I, have three grand boys all under the age of five! Yes, life and ministry is very busy these days.


So over the next 90 days we will be implementing and trying new things at Seeds. Some will work, some won’t. Please be patient will us as we take transitional steps to become the Seeds of Grace Community ‘Resource’ Center, not focusing on giving a hand out, but offering a hand up. Won’t you join us? You can contact me by phone at: 360-659-7335 Ext. 202 or by email
