Dear Abundant Life,
By God’s grace, 2019 will be an exciting year! By faith we believe we will have a new pastor, we will have new missions and outreach opportunities, and we will grow closer as a church family!
This Sunday we’ll be commissioning our new elder Gary Rader as well as celebrating the completed terms of Matt Erdman and Jordan Craft. We will also begin our theme for the month of January “LIVING BY GRACE”.
Covenant Sign Up and Prayer Time: 1/6/2019
Covenant membership sign up for 2019 is now underway! If you were not at ALBC this past Sunday, the elder team shared what it means to be a covenant member at Abundant Life and had a time of prayer over those who signed the 2019 covenant.
Here are some helpful links for those of you who are still prayerfully considering being a member of ALBC in 2019:

Core Members Meeting: 1/13/2019
Please make your plans to join the elder team Sunday night January 13 at 6pm for our first Core Meeting of 2019.
We’ll be reviewing updates on…ALBC membership, the 2019 Budget, small groups, a new opportunity for our youth group, our revised statement on sexual ethics, and of course, we be giving an in depth update on the Pastoral Search.
This is an important meeting covering a variety of topics. We would encourage everyone who calls ALBC their church home to make it a priority to attend this meeting.
A meeting agenda will be emailed next week to all core members prior to the meeting.
Childcare will be provided.
Have you signed up for a small group yet?
Sign-ups for our first semester of 2019 small groups continue this Sunday. These groups will be a church-wide focus on Spiritual Gifts, reinforcing the messages that will be shared from January - March.
Childcare will be offered in both the home groups and when the small groups meet at Providence.
