On behalf of Pastor Patrick and the Abundant Life Ministry family, welcome and thank you for stopping by.  We know that you have choices when it comes to how and where you choose to worship.  It's our prayer that God will lead you to a church home that will minister to your needs and support your holistic growth for powerful living.

Through relevant, practical and empowering messages, Abundant Life Ministries ministers to the needs of people from all walks of life.  As an encouraging and teaching ministry, Abundant Life Ministries ministers to the whole person.  Through radical hospitality, genuine humility and fearless conversation we passionately pursue real change, real love and impactful service. 

Our vision is simple...Holistically Encourage, Equip and Empower the people of God to Love, Live and Serve -- with purpose and power, through the uncluttered Gospel message of Jesus Christ.  At Abundant Life Ministries we believe that individuals, families and communities are transformed by the Word of God, and empowered to live life abundantly (Hebrews 10:24-25; John 10:10; Ephesians 4:2-32).

Abundant Life Ministries is a non-denominational and non-traditional church.  We come for the word, we value meaningful relationships and we believe in individuality.   Through the uncluttered Gospel message of Jesus Christ we believe the people of God are equipped and inspired to build a powerful, personal relationship with God.

"Abundant Life Ministries is all about the people -- encouragement, empowerment and holistic development (Hebrews 10:24).  Through uncluttered Truth, compassionate and real world conversations, and relevant messages, we are passionately committed to ministering to the whole person, changing lives from the inside out and reaching the world.  We  believe that we're all in this together and that church is not a building but rather the people in the building who come together for purpose, power and service (Hebrews 10:25) -- in church, in community and around the world." logo 4

What's a service like?

Our services start with worship music, end with preaching and follow-up prayer. The service is about 1 1/2 hours (10:30am-12pm). We are very casual and non-traditional, yet intentional in our pursuit of God. You can expect to be greeted by friendly people and included in our services.  And we love to have fun, laugh and be transparent!

Preaching

We preach Jesus. This means we teach from the Bible, we minister to the whole person and we apply the uncluttered Gospel Message of Jesus Christ to Power for Christian Living (John 10:10).  Our sermons are  topical, engaging,  relevant and holistic, and will inform and inspire growth in every area of life -- (Matthew 23:1-23; Hebrews 10:24-25; Ephesians 4:2-32).   The sermon usually lasts about 45-60 minutes.  All of our sermons will soon be available online and DVD.  

Prayer

This is how we communicate with God. Nobody is "forced" to pray out loud, but as a charismatic church, it's not uncommon for people to pray passionately at different points of our services. If you have any special prayer requests, our Prayer Team is always happy to pray with you, or you can submit a prayer request online by Clicking Here!

Am I expected to put money in the offering?

If you are visiting with us, we don't expect you to put money in the offering, and you are welcome to just let it pass you by but if you feel lead to sow into our ministry, please feel free to do so. If you are a part of another church, we encourage you to give your tithe to your home church. If you consider Abundant Life Ministries your home church, we'd love for you to prayerfully consider giving. You can give by check or cash during the service, or online by going to our "Giving" page or Click Here.

What should I wear?

We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you're joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you're wearing. It's not uncommon to see people wearing jeans and t-shirt, and others who prefer to still put on their "Sunday best," both are genuinely welcome! We think you'll fit in no matter how you dress.

What about children?

We are pleased to offer ABUNDANT KIDS children's ministry for children ages 2Mo's to 10 years of age.  Children will enjoy food, activity and fun during church services in our ABUNDANT KIDS building adjacent to the sanctuary.  For more information visit Member/Guest Services in the lobby of the church.
