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.

"This is the LORD's doing and it is marvelous in our eyes" Psalm 118:23
Read Mark 4:1 through 5:43
When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed” (Mark 5:27–28).
A woman, afflicted for twelve years with a terrible illness, had tried every human means possible to get relief but found none. She spent all her money on physicians to no avail. Then she heard about Jesus and approached Him in the crowd. Her faith in Jesus’ power to heal was so great that she knew just touching His clothes would be enough. In the midst of the crowd, the woman touched Jesus’ robe and immediately her torment ceased.
What an amazing example of faith! This woman not only believed in Jesus’ power to heal but expected Him to respond to her need. When she boldly reached out to Jesus, her life was changed.
Believing is just the starting point of a prayer life. You also need to expect that God will do what He can do. When we reach out to Him, He will always respond to your faith.
Thought for Today: Reach out to Jesus with an expectant heart.
Quicklook: Mark 5:25–34
