ACM is an apologetics ministry that focuses on defending the Christian faith through the arts as well as through careful argument.  Learn more about ACM at www.athanatosministries.org. All events listed below are held at ACM’s offices at 105 S. Main St., Greenwood, WI.  For more information, contact Executive Director Dr. Anthony Horvath at director@athanatosministries.org

Christian Arts Festival

   ACM will be hosting a Christian arts festival in August of 2016.  See www.christianartsfestival.us for more information.  Musicians, writers, movie-makers, exhibitors, and any others who want to be involved should contact Dr. Horvath.  

   The festival will end with a large Passion Play.  People will be needed to play the various parts, build the set, and so on.  Churches, youth groups, and organizations are encouraged to participate.  An informational meeting on the Passion will be held on Wednesday, January 13th, at 6:00 p.m., at ACM’s offices.

‘Inspired Scribe’ Christian Writer’s Workshop

   ACM has been encouraging Christian authors for nearly a decade through contests, workshops, and classes.  Due to ACM’s unique emphasis on defending the faith, both the writer’s skill and their apologetics knowledge are given attention.  Authors receive one on one attention to their writing and benefit from ACM’s long experience as a Christian publisher and administrator of years of writing contests.

   ACM will host their next workshop on Saturday, January 16th, 2016.  Time:  8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Lunch provided.  Location:  ACM’s offices.  Cost:  $100.  More information at www.christianwritingworkshops.com.

‘Fault Lines’ Lecture and Discussion Series

   ACM hosts regular conversations and seminars on deep religious, philosophical, and political issues.  Each session lasts about an hour, with plenty of time for discussion.  There is no cost for these events.

   At 6 p.m. on Wednesday, January 20th, ACM will host a lecture/discussion titled “First Principles: Life.”  Why some people vehemently support abortion and euthanasia while others vehemently oppose it.    

   At 6 p.m. on Wednesday, February 17th, the next in the series will be “First Principles: Family.”  Explored will be the underlying reasons why secularism always leads to the destruction of the institution of the Family over time, and why the defense of the Family must be paramount for the concerned Christian.  

Defending the Faith -- Apologetics ‘Boot Camp’

   Is Christianity really true?  What about all the contradictions?  Isn’t it just a story?  A myth?  People of all ages struggle with these questions, but in this ‘boot camp’ young people get an opportunity to get the answers they’re looking for.   

   Dr. Anthony Horvath, a former middle-school and high school teacher and experienced Christian apologist will run the ‘boot camp.’ Having spent some time as an atheist himself, you can be sure this will be a very practical and relevant experience.  Recommended for students aged 13-18.  Parents and pastors are encouraged to attend, as well.  

   Date:  February 20th.  Time:  9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Lunch is provided.   Cost: $30.  Group discounts are available.  Location:  ACM’s offices.  Contact Dr. Horvath at director@athanatosministries.org to register.

The Big Wheel Blessing is a sweet tale that happens mainly in the driveway--a magical place where the imagination fuels adrenaline and friendships are made. Dakota learns about the nature of giving and receiving.

The Warden Watch
by Anthony Horvath
 
Casey has stumbled upon a secret: ‘Big Foot’ is real, after all, but its place among the Warden-Watch turns out to be far more mysterious than the myth itself. As one so-called myth after another turns out to be rooted in fact and reality-albeit in wholly unexpected ways-Casey finds himself craning his neck to catch a glimpse… of the Blood King. The Warden-Watch is the first installment from the Annals of Myrtle and the Blood-King. Learn more at:
 
Robert C. Milton's Seed of Doubt is the subject of APG's 
November Book Discussion!
