God can give us the most unexpected opportunities to share our faith—all we have to do is take hold of them.
I have been praying and reflecting a lot lately on how we do discipleship at ABC. We have a strong group of prayer warriors who meet as a small group every Wednesday night. On top of that we have TWIG, the Women’s Bible Study, and the Men’s Breakfast, who all seek to connect and support our congregation members so that we grow closer to Jesus together.

We are the end of 2017, and I really feel like the leadership here at ABC has been painting a picture, and I must say, there is something incredibly satisfying when you get to the end, take a step back and look at your work. I love that about December—after all the busyness of Christmas, there is opportunity to reflect.
Continue to pray for our church. Pray that God will make us a light of hope and peace, pray that we can be a gathering place of believers who lift up Jesus’ name in praise. I pray that this will be a place that you will find Jesus and experience His healing.

Each and every one of them had an amazing time of activities, but also were able to engage with the message of the gospel in new and unique ways. After sharing their stories of camp, we have already begun conversations with more parents regarding our participation at camp next year.
Volunteering at VBS allowed me to reconnect with the church and foster deeper relationships with church members. Every year God uses VBS as an opportunity to teach local children more about Him. Similarly, every year God uses VBS for me as an opportunity to bring me back to home base: ABC.
