Read a brief message from District Superintendent Tom Flanders with details about the upcoming Annual Gathering in Conway, NH, April 1-3.

ANE has secured discounted rates at hotels around the area near our Annual Gathering location. Rooms must be booked by February 28 in order to secure these prices.
It's that time. Time to start planning to join together as an Alliance family for Council 2019. This bi-annual event is scheduled for May 28-June 2 at the Orlando World Center Marriott Hotel and Convention Center, right next to Downtown Disney. This is the perfect location to bring families and children to participate in this year's event.
We are excited to announce that as a district, we generously gave $78,683 towards the GCF in December! Wow. And more than $500,000 was donated through the Year End Offering by all Alliance churches to support the 60 workers. Praise God!Now that 2019 has arrived, we are also thrilled to announce that the New England district has multiple new workers preparing to go overseas.
We are looking forward to being with you all for our upcoming 2019 Winter Clusters! For each cluster we are planning a focused time of worship, prayer and sharing, and we will do more thinking and planning for a Fall Summit Gathering in each region for you and your lay leaders. Registration is now open.
We currently have 60 vetted, trained, and prepared international workers ready to go out into the field next year. This is a record number for us. Twice as many as the C&MA has had in previous years. Praise the Lord! Historically, the number of workers has been on a decline, and led us to pray for God to provide the people. He answered. And He came through abundantly.Now the challenge. We need the funds to send these workers. The Alliance is currently behind budget in our Great Commission Fund. To be exact, we are $1.2 million behind this fiscal year. Now our prayer is for the Lord to provide the financial resources so that every one of those 60 workers can be sent.
The 2018 Impact Report from the Christian & Missionary Alliance is now available for churches and congregations to review. The report highlights the impact C&MA missions and outreach programs are having both here in the United States and globally around the world.
Besides enjoying a fabulous meal, the group shared plenty of conversation and a rousing game of charades. “The students really enjoyed it! Charades resulted in lots of laughter together.”One of the students thanked Hannah after the dinner. He told her, “Thank you very much for such a great gesture. It was an overwhelming experience of having a family like warmth while being thousands of miles away from our family.”
