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.
Also, 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.

Noticing a Blessing
Read Ephesians 4:1 through 6:24
Beginning words can reveal much of a person’s mood, beliefs, or summary of their planned statements. Paul opened the epistle to the church in Ephesus with a traditional greeting, initiating that by offering praise to their Father.
Before the letter’s emphasis on correct doctrine and proper behavior, Paul addressed the readers by noticing the blessings of God.
Paul set the mood by declaring that God—the God that Paul clearly believed was the Father of Jesus Christ, who was Lord of all—had blessed them greatly. Paul used words like “heavenly realms” and “with every spiritual blessing in Christ” for a reason.
He continues the epistle by guiding the audience through various instructions on beliefs and behavior. He challenges, informs, encourages, and warns.
But notice how Paul ends:
Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love (Ephesians 6:24).
To those reading his words, those who loved Jesus with a living love, Paul declared God’s grace.
Prayer Suggestion: Father, I praise You for offering me Christ. Help me never ignore that blessing.
Quicklook: Ephesians 6:18–24
