■ OFFICIAL FESTIVAL SELECTIONS to be considered for awards at the 5th Annual SONscreen Film Festival will be posted by March 30. The SONscreen Project was created by the North American Division to nurture Christian film makers in their craft, career development, and spiritual lives. April 5 is the last day for online registration for the Festival, to be held at the Adventist Media Center in Simi Valley, California, April 12-14.
Contact: www.SONscreen.com for the list of final selections, for more information, and to register.
■ EDUCATION SABBATH WILL BE APRIL 28, NOT April 22 as incorrectly announced in last week’s Friday FAX.
Contact: www.nadeducation.org/dynamic.html?wspID=464&wscID=140 for more information, sample sermons, special bulletin covers, DVDs, and more.
■ “AFCOE TO GO” DISCIPLESHIP TRAINING COURSE by Amazing Facts Center of Evangelism, June 25-28 is a short-term intensive discipleship training course which will be held at at Weimar College in Northern California. It is designed for the busy professional or full-time student who wants a crash course in outreach but can’t attend their usual 4-month training program. Class size is limited to the first 50 who register.
■ STORYHARVEST NEEDS STORIES — StoryHarvest, a new website produced by the Pacific Union Conference, features first person stories from North America about how people found God, or how God found them. For a limited time Church Support Services is paying $50 for personal conversion stories, or stories that depict God's intervention in one's life.
■ ADVENTIST RADIO CONSORTIUM (ARC) has been established by Adventist World Radio as a new opportunity for voluntary networking among Adventist radio broadcasters. One of its primary functions will be to recognize radio stations, producers, and studios that are collaborating with the Church in its mission, as well as to create a database for interaction and resource sharing and to assess the degree of total radio coverage.
For radio stations in NAD, membership in ARC will become a step in the approval process for inclusion in insurance benefits from the church. Eventually, other activities and resources that would benefit ARC members may be implemented, depending upon the interest and need.
Contact: www.adventistradio.org for more information or to apply for membership.
■ THE GLOBAL INTERNET EVANGELISM FORUM 2007, with the theme of "Beyond Borders: Radical Method, Radical Message, and Radical Christ," will be held June 28 - July 1 at Newbold Colledge in Binfield, Bracknell, Berkshire, UK.
