OUR GATHERINGS HAVE SHIFTED TO CONNECTING ONLINE. LINKS TO ZOOM AND OTHER GATHERINGS WILL BE POSTED HERE AND THERE WILL BE EMAILS SENT VIA OUR GROUP EMAIL LIST.
Our physical church gatherings have been curtailed due to the concerns about the spread COVID-19 and the need for physical distancing. The community consensus is to work at avoiding contact in order to keep the virus from spiking too abruptly and overwhelming community resources and facilities. It is a loss not to gather and have that time with each other singing, reflecting on scripture, praying together, and greeting each other. However, caring for each other and the wider community is God’s work as well.
Looking Ahead: The following gatherings will depend on the progress of COVID-19 in the Austin and surrounding area. We will work at keeping the website updated.
Apr 3, FRI, 6-8pm – AMC volunteers serve a meal to the homeless at the ARCH. VOLUNTEERING SUSPENDED.
Apr 4, SAT, 9am-5pm – Hands on Housing Spring Blitz. The Hands on Housing Spring Blitz has been postponed in an effort to mitigate the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Small Groups at AMC – We currently have one small group that meets monthly in the Pflugerville/Round Rock area when they meet in person. During this season of COVID-19 the group will be meeting online via Zoom. Please review the calendar of events above for specific dates and times. The purpose of the small group is to have a less formal setting with a small group of people where everyone has the opportunity to connect and share. The general format is discussion, sharing, and prayer. You are welcome to be part of this AMC Small Group. Contact Pastor Lee if you are interested in attending.
