Prayer Chain Emails
If you would like to be added to the church prayer chain list, please email Kisha at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added.
There will be a meeting for all VBS volunteers following the worship service on Sunday, June 28th. Lunch will be provided. Helpers who do not have a station to run or help in can plan to stay until about 2 P.M. Helpers who have a station to run or a room to decorate should plan to stay later. We will go through the VBS plan together and then provide some time to help each of the stations finish preparing their station’s plan. It’s time to turn the church into Mount Everest! If you wish to begin decorating your space, or you want to assist in decorating the main auditorium, we will begin decorating around 2:30 P.M. Please speak with Sara Craven or Pastor Kevin if you are able to help decorate – we need lots of help!
Wednesday Night Youth Service
Awana, adult Bible study and prayer, and the Wednesday family meals are all done for the summer season. But we will continue to hold a youth service for all middle and high school students on Wednesdays throughout the month of June. We will adjust the time to 6:30-8:00 P.M. to allow for more fun time together. We will take a break for July and the first part of August due to VBS and the missions trip. We will announce later this summer the official date for re-launching. Sunday School will continue weekly unless otherwise announced and individual activities will be announced as they come. If you have any questions, please see Pastor Kevin.
There will be two planning/training sessions for the Missions Trip team. The first will be on Sunday, July 5th from 6:00-7:00 P.M. and the second will be on Sunday, July 19th from 6:00-7:00 P.M. All payments and a photocopy of your passport should be submitted to Pastor Kevin at this stage.
There will be a high school and adult’s gym night on Sunday, July 19th from 7:00-9:00 P.M. in the gym. Please sign up on the youth bulletin board.
Abindon Bible Church will host Vacation Bible School Sunday, July 12 – Thursday, July 16 at 6 P.M. each night.

Rock-solid Bible truths will guide kids through life’s challenges. For more information or to volunteer, please call the church office at 628.2400. Hope to see you there!
