We're glad to welcome you to our church family website. We'd love for you to come visit us in person also!
We are at war. Our war is not political or philosophical or physical. At it root this war is spiritual and the only way that we can fight it is to use the weapons that God has provided.
This September and October we will be looking at those weapons in our Sunday morning worship services.

September 11 – Breastplate of Righteousness – CABC T-shirt Sunday
September 18 – Shoes of Peace – Shoe Donation Day

October 23 – Mobilization Sunday
October 30 – Celebration Sunday
Soles 4 Souls
A lot of times we look around our world and see problems that we are powerless to fix.
This isn’t one of those sorts of problems.
It is estimated that 300 million people living today do not have shoes. As a result they are susceptible to infection through cuts and abrasions and infestations such as helminth worms, not to mention the pain they face doing daily activities.
We can be a part of changing the problems of “the least of these.”
From September 18 through the end of October, College Avenue in partnership with Soles 4 Souls will be collecting used shoes to distribute around the world. Since 2006 Soles 4 Souls, with the help of partnering organizations, has distributed 26 million pairs of shoes.
Our goal is to collect 300 pairs in McGregor. It doesn’t matter what size or condition they are in. Soles 4 Souls even has a warehouse for unmatched shoes waiting to find their match. Drop boxes will be located in the Fellowship Hall, the Family Life Center, and the breezeway between the buildings.
So join us in emptying our closets of old or unwanted shoes, tell your friends, and make a difference in someone’s life.
