Developing a real relationship with God happens one step at a time. We desire you to know the joy and fulfillment that comes with experiencing God’s love and walking with Him in everyday life, we make taking your next step easy. NEXT STEPS is our way of connecting you to all that God has for your life, especially here at ALFC. Each session is designed to move you one step in your walk with God. We look forward to seeing God work and growing with you at ALFC.
STEP 1: NEXT STEPS GROWTH TRACK

God has an incredible purpose for your life, and the Abundant Life Growth Track is designed to help you connect with that purpose.  On the Growth Track, you will spend three Sundays diving into what it looks like to follow Jesus, connect to the church, discover your purpose and then make a difference with your life!

Step 1: This class will help strengthen your relationship with God and teach you what it means to be a fully-devoted follower of Christ.
 
Step 2: This class will give you a basic introduction to the story, beliefs, and structure of Abundant Life as well show you how to get connected and join the church.
 
Step 3: This class will help you discover your unique gifts, personality, and purpose.  You will also have the opportunity to make a difference in the world by joining our Dream Team!
 
God has great plans for your life and the only way you will get to know Him better and fulfill your life’s purpose is by taking STEPS
in His direction.  That is exactly what Next Steps Growth Track is all about!
 
STEP 2: Sunday Worship Experience 
We come together every Sunday to hear from God in a manner that allows us to go forward with the power of God in our lives. The service begins with uninterrupted worship, followed by a Biblical word from God that we believe will lead you to overcome your obstacles in life. We want you to come with an open heart, come expecting, come ready to grow.
 
STEP 3: Join Wednesday Night Bible Studies @ 7pm
Being a part of a smaller group is an essential step for everyone who attends ALFC. A smaller group is the key to developing connections with those who share your life stage, interests or face similar issues in life.  These connections simply can’t be made on a busy Sunday morning. At Wednesday Night Bible Studies  you will form relationships that will help you grow personally and spiritually. You will experience God and the Bible in a small, relaxed setting, have the chance to ask questions and grow closer to your church family. We look forward to getting to know you better on Wednesday Nights.
 
STEP 4: Join ONEteam 
Our Oneteam is all about one thing, serving God by serving His people. The members of this team have discovered their gifts and passions and are actively serving in them. Some serve behind the scenes assisting in the office or working on the Tech Team or Building Maintenance, while others share God’s Word with the next generation, greet people each weekend or help lead worship. Our One Team has many teams and positions that have both fixed and flexible schedules. Some team members serve each week, once/twice a month or as needed. Our One Team and church family also come together in outreach events that impact our community. Big events need lots of great team members to be successful.
ADDITIONAL STEPS:
Personal Devotions
Church is not a substitute for personal devotions. God wants us all to read the Word of God and pray. We offer a short seasonal devotional called “The Word For You Today”. It offers a short lesson, and Bible verse to encourage you in your walk with God. Copies of the devotional are free and are located at the bulletin stand or Information Center. 
Attend Special Events
We offer men’s and women’s meetings and Bible Studies. Take advantage of these and special training and large events scheduled at various times through the year. Watch your bulletin or E-News for more details.
