Psalm 145:4 says "Each generation will announce to the next your wonderful and powerful deed". There is much to tell to the next generation - how Jesus powerfully saves and transforms lives, how He still heals and delivers and brings us out of our old lives and makes us new.
We invite you to meet Jesus. He is the center of the people in Abundant Life. As a church we want you to know that GOD has a plan for your life. Abundant LIFE Church is a Spirit-filled--- a 'come as you are' church in the heart of Altoona, PA.
We have some very exciting and powerful events coming in the next few months. Please check out our church calendar on the website or our weekly bulletin for updates. You are personally invited to come along and share in all that Abundant Life has to offer. We want to meet the needs of each person, every family and our community.
If we can assist you in any way --- please contact us. We would love to have the opportunity to pray for you or answer your questions along with helping you along life's journey.

Summer Sunday Sermon Series:
'YOU... and YOUR IDENTITY in Christ'
10:00 AM... Sunday mornings through July
Read Isaiah 24:1 through 27:13
Isaiah 25 and 26 are reminiscent of the Psalms and provide a refreshing break from the doom pronounced in previous chapters. Amid all the upheaval and unrest, we find God’s “formula” for peace.
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you (Isaiah 26:3).
An older translation expands the meaning of the word “steadfast”: “whose mind is stayed on thee.” All thoughts and actions of this kind of person come from a mind wholly devoted to trusting in God—a stark contrast to the people in previous chapters who forgot God.
So many search for peace in all the wrong places—money, relationships, reputation. But the picture of perfect peace that Isaiah painted in these chapters focuses on an attitude of gratefulness to God: “You have done wonderful things, things planned long ago” (25:1) and “all that we have accomplished you have done for us” (26:12). Giving credit where credit is due is the key. We find peace in our relationship with God and not in things this world deems important.
Prayer Suggestion: Lord, show me today how to keep my thoughts fixed on You.
