Last Sunday, AHCC hosted a Community Fish Fry in our main parking lot and I had the opportunity to meet dozens of our neighbors as we built community in a new way. At 2:45, I watched as folks began to gather. The sun was hot and so was the oil in the fryer, but we were just getting the cooking started. As the team rushed to get food cooked and boxed, we talked with our guests.

It was about two years ago that I addressed the congregation and spoke about my entering into a season of “yes.” At that time, I assumed that would lead to serving our church in new ways, supporting committees, and leading initiatives. What I did not know, was that a much larger calling was beckoning me.
AHCC member Patti Beckett has headed the Hartford Creative Contest for the past five years, coordinating the committee's outreach to schools and the community and the monthly meetings for committee members involved in judging, fundraising, publicity, and publishing the book of winning entries.
During this shelter-at-home time, many of us are cleaning with extra energy, getting projects done at home with our extra hours, including sorting through attics, basements, closets, and garages for things we no longer need or want. Many of these “treasures” will be donated to AHCC Thrift Shop.
