The USA Has a serious issue.

This last weekend reminded us that we have a serious issue in America with violence and hatred.

How do we respond?

There are at least two ways that believers need to respond.

We Successfully Transitioned to Livestreaming!

Our first week of livestreaming was successful, and those who joined us online were able to feel more a part of our worship service.  We still have a few bugs to work out, but we were pleased.  Remember that if you cannot join us in person for any reason, our livestream will begin on our webpage (and on Facebook) at 8:30 am on Sunday mornings.  When that service is over, it will be saved as a video that you can access anytime.

Here’s Tina Giles (our Ministry Assistant) giving us some details!

The Good News about Abortion

The protests and angry rants for-and-against abortion are once again top-of-the-news ever since last week’s leak of a Supreme Court draft.

And though nothing has yet changed, there was already some good news about abortion that is often overlooked.  

The ultimate issue, though, is not about laws or court decisions.  I’m praying for and working for something deeper–a complete heart change in the way Americans look at abortion!  Read my blog at www.abcaz.net/blog for my thoughts.  

ABC Students and Children

PASS IT ON: A 4-WEEK SERIES FROM THE BOOK OF ACTS ON EVENGELISM
WEEK 3 BIG IDEA: You can pass on the good news to your family.

SERIES OVERVIEW:

With social media, just about anyone can be an “influencer” with the right content, good timing, and a little bit of luck. Invent a new dance, share a funny take, catch the right moment on camera, and you could get millions of views. Some “influencers” mostly just use their platforms to get free stuff, but once in a while, you find someone who uses their platform to talk about things that actually matter. Obviously they didn’t have social media back in Jesus’ day, but in the Bible, the book of Acts is filled with stories about “influencers” who had important things to say. In this 4-week series, we’ll hear their stories, discover that our lives can pass on the good news, and learn how to pass on the good news to unexpected people, to our families, and with humility. 

THE MESSENGERS: A 4-WEEK SERIES FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT ON THE EARLY CHURCH
WEEK 4 BIG IDEA: God’s message goes everywhere.

SERIES OVERVIEW:

How many ways can you send a message? There are so many unique ways! Special deliveries are the best but even better are the messages found in each package. This month, we are going to look at the most important message that was ever sent out and how we are meant to be the ones delivering it. Kids are God’s messengers that can share the stories of God’s miracles and help. Get kids involved in helping God’s message go everywhere because God delivers everyone! 

WAC in the MAC Continues!

Wednesday At Church (WAC) has been a great addition to ABC.  We enjoy a good meal, have time for prayer, and enjoy some good classes.  The best part may be the fellowship!

This Week enjoy a Taco Salad with us!  Meals cost $5, but don’t worry about it if you’re short on cash this week.  You can pay whenever by cash, check, or card.

We all need friends.  Sitting around a table with other members of our family is a great way to make them.  We all need prayer. Praying around the table with ABC family members is a great prayer experience!

Prayer Meeting

If you can’t come to prayer meeting in person (with a meal at 5:30), we will still hold an online prayer meeting at 7:00 on Wednesdays.  Business Meeting will begin between 6:20 to 6:30.  Here is the link for both:  May 18: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87463491526
