As the church grows larger, we must also grow smaller. At Abundant Life we are creating a sense of community and connection through participation in small groups.
Abundant Life’s small groups meet on Sunday mornings, Sunday evenings and in homes throughout the week.
Pick up a small group brochure at the Kwik Link Center for more information.
The Bible tells all believers to “be doers of the Word” (James 1:22) .
We have many opportunities for you to use your God-given gifts and abilities to serve Him,

ornational and international missions!
Pastor Jeremiah Hosford is the Lead Pastor at Abundant Life Church. His prayer is that everyone will fall passionately in love with this awesome person named Jesus Christ. He is all about helping you enter into an amazing relationship with an awesome God who is eagerly waiting to introduce Himself to you. No one has gone too far for God to save, regardless of what you have been through. He can personally testify to God’s amazing grace. For years he was addicted to drugs and in the streets. His life was radically changed when he walked into this amazing church, Abundant Life, and was transformed by the power of God and His overwhelming love. Several years have passed and, because of God’s grace, he is now the pastor of this very same church. God continues to move in a powerful way. People with all types of addictions, problems, and situations have come to Abundant Life, and God is delivering them from the power of darkness.
We experience God’s power in every service and have witnessed the salvation of many people and the evidence of God’s Holy Spirit filling and meeting people’s needs.
If you are looking for a church that is RADICAL in its praise, INTIMATE in its worship. FERVENT in its prayers, and SERIOUS about advancing the Kingdom of God, your search is over.
