What a wonderful time it was to be with you all on Sunday at our picnic. I am so thankful for times like those when we can enjoy the blessing of just being together.
Community is a one of our church’s core values and this is best played out through our small groups. This month is our sign-up month. Don’t miss out on getting the chance to sign-up for your small group of choice. Groups will close when they get too full. You can check out what is being offered here: http://www.abundantlifebiblechurch.org/small-groups-1/
I am also looking forward to getting to connect with many of you guys at our Men’s Retreat on September 14-16. Details just came together this week and I am happy to announce that Pastor Brian Pettrey from The Brooklyn Tabernacle will be leading our discussion times at the retreat on the subject of Surrender. This will certainly be a meaningful, fun time for all who can make it. Sign-up in the lobby this week!
This Sunday our “Things that Hold Us Back” Series will continue with a hard look at how stress keeps us from pursuing God. Missionary, Jarod Stevenson will also be sharing about his ministry to France with us. I hope that you will plan on joining us at 9 a.m. or 10:45 a.m.!
See you then,
