|What does ACM do? :
After School Bible Classes
ACM is committed to growing hope in the lives of children and young people. Hope is found only in knowing and following Jesus. Over 1800 children each week attend ACM after-school Bible classes in 18 different locations. In a place where the family structure has been devastated by HIV/AIDS and children are often left on their own, the ACM staff works tirelessly to make these classes a place of refuge. Small children learn that Jesus can be their true family. Teen classes focus on God’s love and acceptance, the challenges of discipleship and a Biblical approach to the pressures and questions of life.
Each morning, school children at four primary schools and one high school hear about the love of Jesus before they begin their school day. ACM teachers are privileged to lead a short devotional and worship time at the invitation of the school faculty. More than 2500 children are reached each week in morning devotions.
Grace Evangelical Church
In addition to Sunday services and weekly prayer gatherings, GEC reaches into the community through home evangelism and visitation, orphan care, community Bible studies and prison outreach. The church is very active in the communities of Esikhawini and Empembeni, spreading the love of Christ in so many ways and remaining an active partner and supporter of ACM.
ACM is committed to actively offering support and compassion to the community in the name of Jesus. ACM hosts youth soccer tournaments, ministry rallies, holiday celebrations, literacy classes, funeral support and yearly medical clinics. These events provide an opportunity to reach children and adults who would not usually participate in ACM or GEC activities.
Once per year a team of doctors, nurses, and other volunteers travel to South Africa and host 3 medical clinics to provide care to the people in the community. These clinics will often be the only time these people are able to see a doctor all year. The team will supply medicine, glasses, and other basic medical care for almost 800 people.
