CORE COURSE: THE ART OF FAMILY WORSHIP
Beginning Wednesday, February 28 | 6:00pm
This course core will introduce the spiritual discipline of family worship. This was a command of God throughout the Old Testament, continued in the New Testament and practiced by the Church throughout history. And yet, the practice has disappeared in our modern context due to our busy lives and distracted hearts. The goal of this course is to give some biblical and historical context for family worship and then share some practical ways to implement family worship in your home. Join us for this two-week study taught by our Worship Director, Hunter Coultrap.
Friday & Saturday (March 1 & 2)
The Weekender is your on-ramp to the life of Alliance Bible Fellowship. You will have the opportunity to meet our elders & staff, ask questions about our church, and share a home-cooked meal with other members of our church.
MEN’S MORNING HIKE
Saturday, March 2 | 9:30am
Join the men for a morning hike at Elk Knob Summit Trail. It will begin at Elk Knob State Park. Contact Eric Dupont if you plan to come: (704) 968-7973. (He will send a message out if the plan changes.)
FINANCIAL PEACE UNIVERSITY (FPU)
Beginning Wednesday, March 6 | 6:00pm | 9 weeks
Join us for an in-person Financial Peace University class. Take control of your personal finances with this life-changing course! This is a traditional FPU Class. That means: We will meet in person for 90 minutes each class, we will watch the lesson videos together in class, and we will do the group activities and discussion in class. Child care is provided. What you put into these nine weeks is exactly what you’ll get out. FPU grads pay off an average $5,300 of debt in 90 days. So. Can. You. Join us! Contact Heather Blizek (email@example.com) with questions.
JOY PROM 2024
Saturday, April 20 | 1:00-4:30pm
Joy Prom is a very special dance for guests (teens and older) who have special medical or intellectual/developmental needs. The afternoon begins with a red-carpet entrance, where each guest is announced by name to the cheering crowd. At the Pamper Stations, the gentlemen can have their shoes shined, and the ladies can have their hair, make-up, and nails done. Guests can have a professional picture taken at the photo booth. Then it’s on to the dance and snacks!
Also, there will also be a Dress Fitting on Saturday, April 13 from 11:00am-2:00pm where Joy Prom participants can come choose a free dress or suit, complete with on-the-spot alterations! It will be held in the Atrium at Alliance Bible Fellowship. Light refreshments will be served. Guests can also make a craft that will be displayed at Joy Prom. It’s the Party Before the Party! Guest do not need to sign up for this event, just come!
NOTE: We are in need of men’s pants and suits for Joy Prom! If you have extra, please consider donating.

Bible Reading Plan
Let’s start the year off right and read the Bible together. Here’s a 2024 Bible Reading Plan to help you stay committed to the daily reading of the Word.
Receive Weather SMS Text Alerts
Occasionally, we need to cancel an event because of inclement weather. Be the first to know when an event — like a Sunday morning service — is canceled because of weather.
Each year during the Christmas season, we have the opportunity to bless our missionaries with a monetary gift. 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”) or click the link above.
Webpage for Sunday Worship Lyrics
We’re introducing www.abfboone.org/worship/lyrics as a new webpage that will be updated weekly with the upcoming songs and lyrics each Sunday. This is specifically for those who cannot see the large screen lyrics. Feel free to pull out your phone and follow along with the lyrics!
Hearing Loop in the Auditorium for Hearing Aid Users
Did you know… ABF has a hearing loop installed in the lower level of the auditorium? This extension of our sound system allows hearing aid users with a telecoil to pick up a signal directly from the stage. Check your hearing aid settings to see if you have a “T” or telecoil mode. **Note: This feature is not available in the raised seating in the back of the room.** We also have wireless packs with headphones which can be picked up from the welcome center or sound booth. Talk with Clayton Thornton to learn more.
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.
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 for Better
Alliance needs your old vehicle for our ministry called Beater for 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

If you’ve missed Sunday morning sermons and want to listen to them again, we have the answer! Here are ways you can refer back to it:
- On the website at abfboone.org/sermons: Each Sunday sermon is uploaded to the website with the livestream recording, audio recording, and notes (when given).
