Candidating Weekend, March 23-24

March 23-24, Andy, his wife Stacy and their kids will be visiting Pine Knolls for a "Candidating Weekend".  These 2 days are very important in the life and future of our church and we really want you to be part of it.  Here is some info that will help you get to know Andy a little bit before he comes:


Andy Sassaman is currently the Executive Pastor at Beartown Road Alliance Church in Corning, NY.  He and his wife Stacy were married in 2003.  Stacy has been a teacher in both public and private school settings, currently serving as Director of Kings Way Academy.  Together, they have three kids, Sarah (14), Emily (11), and Benjamin (9).

Shortly after hearing God’s call to pastoral ministry, Andy began studies through Liberty Theological Seminary in 2007.  In 2008, Andy became a bi-vocational pastor at Ambridge Alliance Church in Western Pennsylvania while also working in the Nuclear Safety industry.  In 2013, he accepted the call as Associate Pastor at Beartown Road and relocated to Corning.  He has a passion to see people connected in the church in order to grow in their love for Jesus.  As a family, they love going to church, participating in youth sports, and taking family adventures together.

Core: Health + Wholeness From the Inside  Out

In this 8-week series for women we will be tending to our core (soul and spirit) as a foundation for meaningful and sustainable change in our health and in our lives.  We will be discussing core topics of health and nutrition and setting personalized weekly goals. Through optional exercise (faithful workouts), we'll be strengthening our core, those muscles that are so important for power, balance and stability   Wednesdays- starting March 27th (8:30-9 optional exercise). Class meets in the foyer from 9-11. No childcare and no meeting on April 24th. Please sign up at the information center.  Facilitated by Lauren Varney
