Psalm 145:4 says "Each generation will announce to the next your wonderful and powerful deed". There is much to tell to the next generation - how Jesus powerfully saves and transforms lives, how He still heals and delivers and brings us out of our old lives and makes us new.
We invite you to meet Jesus. He is the center of the people in Abundant Life. As a church we want you to know that GOD has a plan for your life. Abundant LIFE Church is a Spirit-filled--- a 'come as you are' church in the heart of Altoona, PA.
We have some very exciting and powerful events coming in the next few months. Please check out our church calendar on the website or our weekly bulletin for updates. You are personally invited to come along and share in all that Abundant Life has to offer. We want to meet the needs of each person, every family and our community.

Left Over but Valuable
Read Amos 5:1 through 9:15
When people make their own clothes, they purchase patterns and material at a fabric store. After selecting the desired fabric, a salesperson unrolls the bolt of cloth to cut off the required yardage. However, occasionally a person can purchase a remnant or a shorter length of fabric that is left after most of the fabric has been removed from a bolt. It is left over to be sure—but still valuable and useful.
Hate evil, love good; maintain justice in the courts. Perhaps the Lord God Almighty will have mercy on the remnant of Joseph (Amos 5:15).
As Amos proclaimed grim judgments on his people, he also offered the hope of mercy for those he called the “remnant of Joseph.” This was a small number of loyal believers that God could preserve. In a way they were like the remnants of cloth—left over, but still valuable. This, of course, is a reassuring message for Amos’ audience and for us today. Indeed, God always preserves His people—for their benefit and His glory.
Prayer Suggestion: Lord, help me trust You even when I seem to be alone in following You.
Quicklook: Amos 5:14–17
