Upcoming Events and Activities



28 February 2017: 19h30-21h, in the Thurber Room. At this monthly event, we share a delicious meal and hear from a guest speaker. This month, we welcome Carolyn Bouazouni!

Carolyn is on the Mission Outreach Committee at ACP and has visited our missionaries in the prisons of Ghana many times, accompanying them into the prisons there, including the Maximum Security Prison.  She went from being afraid, to really having a “heart for prisoners” and wanting to do everything she can to help them. 

As a result, two years ago she took early retirement from her job at Disneyland Paris to start ACP’s “Paris Prison Ministry”, which now reaches into four prisons in the Paris area.  She will talk about the great adventure of her spiritual journey with God that brought her to the prisons, something that was not even on her radar screen until just a few years ago.
