Michigan is officially under a "Stay in Place" lockdown for the next three weeks. We want to continue to bring encouragement and ministry to you by way of text messages, facebook, and our live Stream.
We plan to continue with Live Stream service at 10:45 on Sundays and ZOOM meeting video conference on Wednesdays until we are free to gather in person.
Thank you for your patience.
Abundant Life Assembly Brooklyn, MI
2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
First let me encourage you not to allow fear, worry, and anxiety to rule in your life. God is alive and well and is our “ever present help in times of trouble.” We have the power and authority to overcome the evil one!
I am also reminded, in this season of crisis, to respond in love. There will be a multitude of opportunities in the coming days to “love your neighbor” in practical ways.
Finally, God has given us a sound mind and a promise of wisdom. We are to honor the civil authorities, obey the laws of our land, and use Godly wisdom to make decisions.
Our church, at this time, has a lower average weekly attendance that 250 and is legally allowed to gather (Michigan Gov. Whitmer has banned gatherings of 250 or more from 3/13 through 4/5). Our plan, at this time, 3pm March 13, is to have ONE service only this Sunday March 15, 2020 at 10:45am. We will simplify our service and take wise precautions for health such as having a limited food service, limiting physical greetings, and taking extra measures of sanitizing all areas.
We encourage anyone with symptoms of sickness or those who are more vulnerable to a virus such as those with a compromised immune system to stay home and join our service online. If you are uncomfortable joining a live gathering, we completely respect your decision, and encourage you to join our service online. If you find yourself sick or in need of help, please submit a prayer request at www.alaog.org/pray and we will certainly pray and help if we can.
You can also view the live stream through the “USTREAM” app.
