Annual Theme

Each September during Homecoming worship, AHCC clergy reveal the theme they have carefully and prayerfully discerned will guide worship, programs and events for the program year (September – June). These themes are meant to offer people both focus and freedom; it focuses the community on a common vision while at the same time gives each person the freedom to explore what God is revealing to us as individuals.

Making All things New

On Earth As It Is In Heaven

The theme for the 2022-23 program year is “On Earth As It Is In Heaven.” We are called as a community of faith to discern how we might discover ways throughout the year to take action through the many forms prayer takes including doing the work of love and justice, in order to help usher in the kingdom, on earth as it is in heaven.

Some past themes have been “Making All Things New” (2021-22) which comes from the Book of Revelation and tells the story of John’s apocalyptic prophecy; “For Such a Time As This” (2020-21) inspired by the story of Esther, a young Jewish woman who finds favor with the king, becomes queen, and risks her life to save the Jewish people; and “Wading Into Deeper Waters” (2019-20) from the book of Isaiah and the promise that God is with us through trials and difficulties.
