All Things Considered

This Sunday at ATC


All Things Considered is a drop-in group for adults that meets in the Chapel on Sunday mornings after worship for about an hour. We begin in September and end in mid-May.  Each program features a speaker who shares their expertise and experience with those in attendance. Speakers have included leaders from local mission organizations, newscasters, judges, authors and many, many more. Please look below to see upcoming speakers.

We also welcome your suggested topics for discussion. Please contact the church office with your suggestions.

November 26, 2017:

We will be discussing the video: "The Advent Conspiracy". 

Christmas is not our local shopping mall’s story to tell. Christmas is the Church’s story to tell—it’s ours. So in 2006, 5 pastors decided to do Christmas differently. They called it the Advent Conspiracy, and came up with four tenets—Worship Fully, Spend Less, Give More, Love All—to guide themselves, their families, and congregations through their season of preparation for Christmas
