Hey there NW Austin and beyond! We are just getting the website set up and running. My name is Thom Fulmer and I am the pastor for the new ACF Northwest Community. So here are a few facts about me and a few facts about our new community: Me: I've been married (over my head) for 20 years. My wife and I have 2 kids, a boy in high school and a girl in middle school. All of my working life has been in sales...until recently. We have recently moved back to the Austin area from San Antonio, returned to our old church and joined their staff to begin this new church in the neighborhood I grew up in (Northwest Hills).
ACF - Northwest: This is the 2nd community that ACF has launched in a strategy to reach out to communities in the Austin area, enabling the seekers of meaning and purpose opportunities to know, love and serve Jesus Christ. My desire is to reach people with the Good News that Jesus loves them and wants to know them in a way that will change their everyday life. So, here are a few answers to common questions:
Q: Where are you meeting?
A: In community groups, in people's homes. We are beginning new groups, reaching out to the NW Austin area, building community with the intent of giving people the opportunity to see and experience the love of Jesus Christ in a comfortable place (like their own or a neighbor's home).
Q: What are you going to do about youth or a youth group?
A: We're going to have one. We are not sure how it will look, but we want to partner with ministries in our area that are reaching kids, sharing the Good News that Jesus loves them. We want our kids to be in relationships with leaders where they are known and learning more about how Jesus loves them and everyone around them. More details to follow in the weeks and months ahead.
Q: Are you going to meet on Sundays? Where?
A: Yes, we would like to begin meeting on Sundays in September. We are looking for a place to meet in NW Austin. Details will be made available as we uncover them!
There is so much more to share, so please keep checking the website and this blog to follow our progress. We are looking forward to the journey ahead, confident that we will see that the Lord move in this community!
