Quite frankly, nowhere in the Bible will you find where God encourages us to be lone rangers. While, it’s often true that when we’re struggling or just not wanting to deal with life or people, we choose to isolate ourselves. Answers, encouragement and the challenge to change are rarely found in isolation. It’s in the context of community that we grow and share in the highs and lows of life. The Bible shows us that God’s original intent was that we would journey through life together. It also shows us two are better than one. Yes, Jesus came to save you by His grace, but it was also His intent that you be placed in a redemptive community where you would change as a result of the encouragement and challenge of others.
So it’s in the context of these groups that we believe your life is going to change the most. That’s where you’re going to grow. When we regularly get together with other people on the same journey, that’s where we can be known, loved, celebrated and served. That’s church the way God meant it to be. You may simply be planning on attending a church service at Abundant Life Community Church but you’ll be missing out on a huge part of what we’re all about.

Friday Night Youth
Friday Night Youth is our student ministry designed for Middle School and High School. This is an exciting time in a young person’s life where they develop their own, genuine relationship with Jesus and discover who they are in Him. Our goal is teach them how to discover for themselves who Jesus is and show them how to walk out their relationship with Jesus.
We meet on Friday Nights during the school year from 6:30-9:00pm. We ALWAYS have fun - Basketball, Dodgeball, video games, crafts, FOOD, etc...students definitely have options. But most importantly. we are a church designed for teens! A relevant service for them to encounter God for themselves. In an effort to deepen our teenagers faith, the student ministry participates in youth conferences, retreats, and holds a summer internship that focuses on discipleship. Friday Night Youth is a safe place for students to grow in God and have fun, come check us out!
