Dear AABC Family,
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours!
Whether you have been with AABC for decades or just a few months, whether you are joining us online or in-person, we are grateful that you are part of this family and local Body of Christ! This year has been unlike anything we ever imagined… yet at the same time, we can still see God at work and His Kingdom being extended through the Church.
We are currently in Phase 2B of our Re-Entry Plan. That means that many of our usual plans for Christmas services and celebrations are on hold this year. Even so, we are excited to have our Christmas worship service this Sunday (in-person or livestream) at 9:30 a.m., and we invite you to celebrate with us the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ through songs, Scripture and communion… in community!
Our worship services are held in our gym (in the Sports and Fellowship Center), where there are pod configurations of seats for family and friend units to sit together while observing social distancing. Everyone is required to wear masks for the entire service and while they are on campus. Exceptions are made for the partaking of communion (using individually sealed cups/wafers) and for the Worship Leader, Ambassador and Pastor while they are on stage. The back doors of the gym and lobby are opened to allow airflow—this can cause the gym to be very cold, so please wear a jacket.
Our Children’s Ministry is both in-person and virtual starting at 9:30 a.m. For those joining in-person, multiple health and safety measures are in place to so that children, parents and volunteers have a blessed time together while on campus.
Please remember to register if you are coming on campus for worship services and/or Children’s Ministry and to fill out the health questionnaire within 24 hours before the start of worship services. Moreover, invite a friend or family to join you in worship on our campus or as a watch party online!

Grace and peace,
