Another Couples Retreat is in the books and all were encouraged by this special time at Cedar Springs as they studied What Did You Expect? by Paul Tripp. Please note that Atonement will be offering an opportunity for all couples to study this material on Wednesdays in May.

Dare 2 Share LIVE was amazing! Thousands of youth across the nation joining in a live event all about sharing the Good News of God's love. River joined the movement with several youth ministries for our own local event hosted by Jake's House Church. Many gospel conversations took place around our city and almost 500 lbs of can food was collected for our local food bank! Read more at Dare2sharelive.org!
What an incredible gift life is! We believe God is the author and giver of life from every stage from conception to natural death. We encourage the support of a local ministry called Living Hope! This is an active ministry with the mission to be a visible presence in our community that offers "Living Hope" to parents and their children, by meeting their spiritual, physical, and relational need through the body of Christ. Because so many are without hope when they are faced with an unplanned pregnancy, their goal is to have a presence to offer "Living Hope" every hour that Everett Planned Parenthood is open. You can help make this possible by signing up on their website at www.livinghope.me
Our youth ministry, River, has been involved in working together with other Arlington youth ministries.

ASM has organized events such as Dare 2 Share LIVE, My Story 2017, Cinco De Mayo Dodgeball, Share The Love Race, Worship Night AHS, and more.
