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)!

Kindness Begets Kindness
Read 2 Samuel 19:1 through 20:26
A couple faithfully served God for many years, opening their home and showing kindness to others. Many people came to know Jesus and grow in Him through their influence. Shortly before retirement, the people in their church did a home makeover for them. Those who helped were happy that they were able to repay this couple for the years of kindness and caring they had shown.
When King David fled from his son Absalom, Barzillai provided for the king. After his reign was reestablished, David offered to take care of Barzillai in return for his kindness. Barzillai asked that David bestow his favor on his son Kimham instead.
“Here is your servant Kimham. Let him cross over with my lord the king. Do for him whatever you wish” (2 Samuel 19:37).
Paying it forward is a modern way of expressing the idea that an act of kindness often fosters other acts of kindness. You may never know how an act of kindness may multiply to benefit many others and bring glory to God.
Prayer Suggestion: Lord, may the kindness I show inspire others to be kind and bring glory to You.
Quicklook: 2 Samuel 19:31–40

This Week in AG History -- April 15, 1944
J. W. Welch, an early chairman, described missions as the reason-for-being of the Assemblies of God. At the 1943 General Council of the Assemblies of God unanimously approved becoming a member of the National Association of Evangelicals, as the Assemblies of God desired a sweet spirit of fellowship, rather than condemnation of other Christians "who may not see eye to eye" on everything. Read Stanley Frodsham's article and many others in this historic Pentecostal Evangel.
