Blue Christmas – A Service of Remembrance and Hope

Temple Worship Center/December 3 – 2pm So many times we hear… “Since our loved one died, the holidays just are not the same. If only there was some way to remember and honor the love we shared”. We agree, and that is why we are inviting you to a special time to do just that. Blue Christmas is a memorial service for those dealing with grief during the holidays. This hopeful environment offers emotional healing through a ceremony of testimonies, music, and a media presentation honoring our loved ones. While you may just choose to attend Blue Christmas, there are a couple of additional opportunities during the service that are planned to bring special and personalized remembrances of your lost loved ones. A personalized candle with your loved one’s name can be purchased. This candle will be lit during the service as their picture or name is shown (see #2 below). The candle will then be available for you to take home afterwards. Even if you choose not to purchase a personalized candle, we would still like to recognize your loved one by showing a picture and/or listing their name. There is no cost for this. To register for service, purchase personalized candle, or to upload a photo, CLICK HERE or sign-up in the church office. Deadline for submissions is November 27. For additional information about Blue Christmas, email dd@abt316.com or call ABT at 330-745-8824. Please use the main entrance or Door...

ALL IN for Jesus

ALL IN for Jesus! Why does it seem that so many people who call themselves Christians have so little in common with Jesus? Hypocrites in the church are giving Jesus a bad name. Without a doubt that is why Mahatma Gandhi said,  “I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.” At ABT we want to change that perception. So we have focused our attention on what it means to be an authentic ALL IN Christian. We want to be people who look like Christ in our character and actions. Salvation is a free gift. We receive this precious gift unaware of what it fully means to have a faithful relationship with God through Jesus Christ. As we grow, we discover the depth of His love for us. As we do, we find that there will be a moment when we affirm what He has done for us by declaring we are ALL IN for Him. This declaration does not take place at our spiritual birth, but will emerge as we become aware of how much He has done for us. Nothing less than being ALL IN for Him is acceptable as  we truly understand His love and passion for us. For the sake of Christ, and His kingdom, let’s all be ALL IN for Jesus and for His work here at ABT! Watch the ALL IN life change stories from some amazing...
