The ABF Special Needs Ministry invites children and adults with special medical or developmental needs, and their siblings, to participate in the next Respite Night on October 14, from 6:00-8:30pm. Activities include a large motor area, a playroom for younger children, a sensory area, a craft, a movie, and a light snack. Experienced volunteers will hang out with the kids while mom and dad can enjoy a couple of hours away. Please contact Ronny and Anne Margaret Wright, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions.
Ministering to Families with Estranged and/or Prodigal Members
Connection Group 3 meets in Room 301 from 9:00-10:30am. We believe that the devil wants to destroy Christian families. We’re offering a prayer ministry to those who have family members who are estranged from the family and/or prodigal from the faith. Whether you drop in during our prayer time or our lesson, we believe that this ministry of prayer for families in the church is a priority. Drop-in and we will pray for your situation. Utmost confidentiality will be practiced.
Volunteering with Afghan Families
Alliance has welcomed four Afghan families into our community. They’re blessing us in so many ways! If you’re interested in volunteering with these precious people, go to abfboone.org/afghan to see ways you can help.
Each year, we have the opportunity to bless our missionaries with a monetary gift. This is a tangible way to send encouragement and support to our missionaries, both overseas and locally. Please consider how you can encourage our missionaries, many of whom are far away from their families and their Alliance community. You can either make a donation on Sunday Morning (mark your donation “Missionary Christmas”).
Prepare Hot Meals for Our Church Family
Sometimes people in our church family need meals because of sickness, a death, a newborn, or another reason. This is a wonderful way to be the hands and feet of Jesus by providing a prepared hot meal for those who are not able to prepare it. Consider joining the Meals Ministry Team.
Police Officers Need to be Adopted
While a bulletproof vest affords a certain level of protection for officers, an even greater blessing and shield of protection can be found in the power of prayer. The goal of Adopt-A-Cop is to assign every individual officer to a person or family who will pray for them on a daily basis and send an occasional note offering encouragement, prayer support, and gratitude for the service they provide. If you wish to participate, you may email Trish at TrishLKanipe@gmail.com to sign up.
Need Old Vehicles for Beater or Better
Alliance needs your old vehicle for our ministry called Beater or Better. We give old vehicles to people in need in our community. The vehicles don’t have to be running (we know mechanics to get ‘em running again). If you have an old vehicle you want to give away, email the office at email@example.com.
Chosen Ministry Adopt-A-Family
The Chosen Ministry has a new way for you to be involved in serving and caring for families going through the adoption and foster care process. Through this program, you are assigned a specific family to care for. The commitment is for a year. You provide them with meals, rides, house work, or whatever is helpful for them. If this is something you or a life group might be interested in, please fill out the form. You will then be assigned a family that is the best fit for you. Please consider helping to show God’s love to one of these families by walking alongside them this year.
