Posted On: 10/25/2016 4:45 PM
For those who are new to AACS, or whose kids have just aged-in to Spring Fling, this is a life-changing opportunity for them to meet God on their own (apart from family traditions/patterns), amid their peers, and with counselors (maybe you?) who will work to show them just how wide, deep and high God's love is for *them.* It is a great Christmas gift...for some their first "solo" vacation, for others, the vacation they look forward to all year! We need adult volunteers! Come see for yourself!

The Love of God is Magnificent!

Posted On: 10/25/2016 4:49 PM

   
The Love of God is Magnificent!
Posted 05/09/2014 11:15AM

The author of 1st John wrote about love.  It is written: "Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.  And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth." (1John 16-18) It does not happen often enough, that so many people are witness to such a prevalent example of God's love. This is a story of how one person was able to share God's love through the gift that He provided. 

For the past eight years, the AACS Spring Spectacular has ended with the excitement of selecting the winner in the drawing for free tuition. Those of you who attended this year know that the winner was Caroline Stone, our Director of Admission.  You may also know that Caroline's children are grown, and do not attend AACS.  So, what’s the story? We thought you'd like to know.

The day after the Spring Spectacular we talked to Caroline about the drawing.  “I started buying tickets for a tuition raffle in 2007 at my previous school.  While at AACS, I’ve also purchased a tuition drawing ticket each year, with the purpose of supporting the auction.  Each time I purchased a ticket, I had a specific family in mind that I knew I’d donate the tuition to if I won.”

When Caroline’s name was called she said that “surprise” was an understatement.  She never imagined her name would be drawn.  As in prior years, Caroline had a family in mind when she purchased the ticket.  This family has had a very difficult year and the hopes of returning to AACS for the next school year was fading away.

On the Monday following the event, Caroline presented the free tuition prize to her chosen family. She’s asked that they remain anonymous. They were overwhelmed with the blessing. Caroline too felt very blessed to have been able to help this AACS family. God works in amazing and often unexpected ways!
