Chili Cookoff

ABC is having our annual Chili Cook-Off this Sunday, November 5th! It will  immediately follow Worship Service at 11:30 AM. This is always a fun time as the men show off their best chili!  As always, there will be a vegetarian alternative.

The ABC Christmas carolers visited and sang for several of our members on Saturday 12/19/2015.  Thanks to all the singers for participating and for singing beautifully!

This photo was taken at Brookdale Fort Collins, where we sang for Katie Lynch (front right) and other Brookdale residents.

MOPS Resumes Sept 12

MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) will resume meeting on Friday September 12. They will meet at ABC on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month from 9:00 to 11:00 am. Childcare will be provided.

Summer Schedule

Sunday, June 1, we will begin our summer schedule, with our traditional break from Sunday School. Worship will remain at 10:30. Children ages preschool through completed 5th grade will leave for Sunday School during Worship, from approximately 11:00am to noon. Discussion Time will be at 11:30.

Sunday Schedule Change

We will have a new Sunday morning schedule starting on March 9. In responding to feedback regarding the schedule we have had since last fall, we will return to a schedule similar to previous years. The key difference is that Sunday School will be 45 minutes long. This will be the new schedule:

  • 9:15 – 10:00 Sunday School
  • 10:00 – 10:30 Worship Preparation (praise team warm-up, choir warm-up, staff prayer time)
  • 10:30 – 11:30 Worship
  • 11:30 Fellowship Time

The time for worship will remain the same throughout the year. During the summer months, Sunday School will be suspended and we will have Discussion Time following worship.
