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 heart and center of the lives of the folks of Abundant Life as well as the life of our church. He has a plan for your life. If we can help you in anyway - please contact us, we would love to pray for you or answer your questions and help you with your life journey.
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.
You can find us on Facebook by searching for "LIFE Church (Abundant Life Assembly)!
THEME for the coming year:
God Hears Our Prayers
Read 1 Kings 8:1–66
Susanna was shopping when she collapsed. She was rushed to the ER with a ruptured brain aneurysm. Susanna’s friends and relatives began praying as soon as they heard the news. Susanna eventually recovered, although the road was long and difficult. God heard and answered the family’s prayers.
Solomon prayed to set the temple apart to the Lord.
“Hear from heaven, your dwelling place. Do whatever the foreigner asks of you, so that all the peoples of the earth may know your name and fear you, as do your own people Israel, and may know that this house I have built bears your Name” (1 Kings 8:43).
Solomon asked God to always keep the promise He had made to David, to forgive Israel if the Israelites repented of sin, and to listen to strangers who came to pray at the temple. Solomon asked for God’s favor.
God does not always answer our prayers the way we would like Him to, but He does always answer.
Challenge for Today: Start keeping a journal of the things you pray about and how God answers those prayers.
Quicklook: 1 Kings 8:41–43
