NIGHT OF WORSHIP
Friday, October 6 | 7:00pm
Our Night of Worship is going to be a wonderful time of praise and prayer as we gather together to worship Jesus. Our prayer for this night is for people to connect with Jesus in a special way through music that would strengthen their faith and encourage them as they live lives of worship. Mark your calendars and invite people to come praise Jesus together.

Do you want to start or continue your journey in glorifying God in all that you do as a man? If so, the Men’s Ministry would like to invite you to join the men at The Caswell Retreat Center for a weekend retreat. Mike Shellman, Pastor of Outreach and Assimilation, will lead our conference teaching. We are very excited about Pastor Mike’s giftedness and talent to lead our men. We will enjoy a weekend on the NC coast, bonding with our men and fellowshipping during meals and activities. We need each other to live a life that glorifies God and is worthy of our God-given calling. Registration closes November 16!

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. 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, email@example.com, with any questions.
Opportunity to Serve with Children and Students
If your calling is to serve with students and children this fall, we invite you to share your interest with the Cam Lloyd. We have many opportunities for you and your family to serve — even for a short season. Learn more at abfboone.org/serve.
Opportunity to Serve in Photography & Videography
Calling all photographers and videographers! If you have a talent (or interest!) in serving in media in either photo or video, Seth Kingdon (firstname.lastname@example.org) would love to chat with you. Opportunities include serving on Sunday morning, shooting b-roll at special events, and teaching others the technique of capturing God-glorifying media. Learn more at abfboone.org/serve.
Pickleball in the Gym
We have started pickleball classes for beginners again this year. If you want to learn this most popular sport, you are welcome any:
Tuesday at 1:00-4:00pm AND 6:00-8:30pm
Thursday at 11:30am-3:00pm
Saturday from 10:00am-1:00pm
No cost, just fun! We meet in the church gym every week. Come and make some friends and get some exercise.
You don’t need to bring any equipment. Be sure to wear good tennis shoes.”

Bible Reading Plan
Let’s start the year off right and read the Bible together. Here’s a 2023 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.
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.
