OUR

MINISTRIES

Abundant Life Church strives to meet the needs of every member and guest.  We have many ministries and opportunities for everyone to be involved and grow in their relationship with Jesus. Every age group is encouraged to be a part - whether you are a child, teen, young adult, or a senior, you are important to us!

Children's Ministry

Travis & Sara Vojtasek

childmin@alcthorp.com

Abundant Life Church has a thriving

Children's Ministry for Ages 0 - 11.  

We strive to have a place for everyone,

no matter their abilities or levels. 

Sunday Mornings at 10:00 am, we have Sunday School for Toddlers 1-2, and a staffed Nursery until noon, for those that would like their children to stay. 

For Ages 3-11, we have Children's Church beginning at 10:00 am and finishing at noon.  Our programming consists of games, music, puppets, worship, Bible stories, prayer time, and more.  We have Large Group and Small Group time throughout those two hours.  

We want all children to enjoy their time with us, take home something they've learned, and most of all - build a personal relationship with Jesus.

H2O Youth Ministry

Today's Christian Girl Club

Michelle Goebel

TCG@alcthorp.com

Today's Christian Girl is a Club type ministry that focuses on girls ages 10-18.  Our motto for Today's Christian Girl is "Livin' Right and Lovin' Life."  Our desire is to show our girls that when you live "right," that is, according to the principles of the Word  of God, that you will "love" your life.  How do we achieve this?  Once or twice a month meetings are held that deal with the issues that our girls are facing today.  Our meetings are more than just a devotion and a snack.  Instead, our goal is to provide a fun, safe place where our girls can learn about God and grow in their relationship with Him.

Girl's Club is a YEARLY MEMBERSHIP group. Please contact the church office for more information.

Men's Ministry

The goal or our Men's Ministry is to encourage and help men become great Christian leaders in all areas of their lives: at home, in the church, on the job, and out in our community.  We pursue this goal by getting together every month for men's prayer meetings, devotionals, and other activities for good times, fun, and fellowship.

MUSIC MINISTRY

The Music Ministry at Abundant Life Church is a vibrant, ever-developing team effort, with Jesus at the center.  The music is upbeat and strong, and also deeply passionate, reflecting the variances of praise, then worship, as we draw closer and closer to God.

Our worship team is individually and collectively pursuing the presence of God: the ongoing experience of God and His kingdom, through His manifest presence.  Committed to complete worship of God and complete dependence upon Him as well.  Our ultimate vision is To Worship in Spirit and in Truth.

Bus Ministry

Abundant Life Bus Ministry has a goal and desire to reach our local communities.

We offer rides to church for people of all ages that wouldn't have the ability to come to our services otherwise.

Our goal... "to be more than just a ride to Church" means that we don't just drop you off at the door, but that we build a relationship with each individual we contact. Through this connection we hope they find a place to belong in the body of Christ.

Home Bible Studies

At ALC, it is our desire that EVERY individual has a solid, Biblical foundation of doctrine.  We are dedicated to help those who have questions concerning doctrine, and other current issues in our world today.  Laying all man-made ideas and philosophies aside, we commit to find answers strictly from the Word of God.  We will connect you to individuals who are willing to meet personally with you, on a weekly basis, to seek answers from the World of God!

Everlasting Arms Puppet Ministry

Travis & Jessica Udelhofen

Everlasting Arms Puppet Ministry has been ministering at Abundant Life and across the state of Wisconsin for almost 20 years. Through puppet songs, skits, and blacklight puppetry, we strive to declare the message of Jesus to children, ages 0 - 100!

During children's crusades, camps, VBS, Children's Church, Sunday School, and even Birthday Parties, we love to make children smile, while they are learning about Jesus and His love for each of them.

Prison and Jail Ministry

Matthew 25:40

Our mission is to offer the love and hope of Jesus to lives that are incarcerated and have been affected by incarceration; to  introduce and encourage a relationship with Jesus Christ as their Savior, Redeemer, Father, and Friend; and to promote life-changing decisions for those who have lost sight of their God-given purpose, according to the Word of God, that would lead them to live productive God-honoring lives in society.
