Welcome!

Greetings and welcome to Abundant Life Community!  This website was created and designed to augment the community life of our ministry.  For you who are considering a visit, you should be able to find answers to the basic questions you may have about who we are and how we can serve to nurture your faith and the faith of your loved ones.  I hope you will find the information here helpful, but nothing is better than an actual visit to our church.  John 10:10 tells us that Jesus came to offer us abundant life, visit and see for yourself how we are living into that promise. You will be welcomed!

May God bless you!​

Vision

As a United Methodist congregation, our vision is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. By developing loving relationships with God and one another, inviting others into Christian community, furthering growth as followers of Jesus, extending our Spirit given gifts to serve one another and the world, we seek to glorify our loving God.
