OUR HEART FOR MISSIONS
At Abundant Life Church we place value on humanity and are committed to being advocates for, praying for, and providing practical care and support for those in our world. We are working within our local community, as well as partnering internationally, to take care of some of the most vulnerable and at risk people. Our heart is to connect with communities and combine practical support with the loving message of Jesus.
HOW DOES YOUR FAITH PROMISE WORK?
A faith promise is a commitment to financially support the missions program of Abundant Life Church (see below). It is a recognition that we, as Christians, have a responsibility to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, and that ultimately, God has the answer to every need.
Every year in June, we invite our congregation to make a financial faith pledge for the upcoming 12 months.
