Connecting to God Connecting to Each Other Connecting to the World
Life is Better Connected
Sunday Service Starts at 10 a.m.
At Abundant Life Church - Pengilly, we are committed to connecting to God, connecting to each other and connecting to the world. Our church has a laid-back, relaxed atmosphere where you can come as you are and enjoy coffee, tea, hot chocolate, cider, lemonade and treats in the sanctuary before, during and after service. We also live stream the service on Facebook. Clickhere to view services.
We are a casual bunch at ALC-P, and we want you to feel comfortable, too! Whatever attire makes you feel the most at ease is great with us. You will see a great variety of clothing styles such as jeans and
t-shirts, dress clothes, leggings, sweatshirts, Vikings jerseys and even an occasional Packers one. Simply come as you are!
What Sunday Service Looks Like
Come to church early to fellowship and share in drinks and treats. A five minute countdown before the start outlines the schedule for the service. Once the countdown goes to zero, we have a welcome,
introductions, an invite to connect with God, the worship scripture of the month and prayer.
Contemporary worship follows, then announcements, Missionary Moment, and a 5-minute coffee break to refill drinks and treats. Other than the first Sunday of the month, at this time, kids K-6 are checked in to JC Kids' Club for kids' church. The first Sunday of the month is communion and kids stay in the sanctuary for the entirety of the service. For those with pre-K children, The Noah Room is an unstaffed nursery available for use for parents and their children. Tune into Facebook in The Noah Room and watch the rest of the service live from your phone as we live stream.
Following coffee break, Pastor Bill shares for Coffee with Jesus, what we call the sermon time, giving relevant messages with challenges to grow in your relationship with Jesus. Church concludes with an opportunity to receive prayer at the open altar following the service. The service ends between 11:15 and 11:30 a.m.
There are baskets on the altar for tithes and offerings so those who wish to give may do so anytime during the service. If you are a guest, please do not feel any pressure or obligation to give. This is an act of worship for our regular attenders, allowing them to thank God for all of the great work He is doing in their lives and to give back to help continue the work of the church. Should you feel led to give, we have offering envelopes available with an online giving option, or donations can be made directly from the website.
For the Kiddos
The Noah Room is unstaffed at any time during the service for pre-K children and parents, and staffed after worship. There are toys, books and a pack and play in The Noah Room should a little one need a rest. We live stream the service on Facebook, so pull us up on your phone and watch the rest of the service.
JC Kids' Club is for kids K-6th grade. Check-in follows announcements during the coffee break. Kids spend time on the playground and have a Bible lesson and/or crafts and activities geared just for them. The first Sunday of the month is communion Sunday and kids remain in the sanctuary with us for the entirety of the service.
There are Kid Kits available in the sanctuary for use during the service. We encourage kids to worship during the worship segment of the service, but on communion Sunday they are welcome to get a Kid Kit and enjoy the items while they attend church. Following the service, Kid Kits can be returned to the cubby for use for next time. Click here for more information about kids.

We encourage everyone to fill out a Connect Card. If it is your first time as an ALC-P guest, simply drop the card in the offering basket on the altar. Be sure to pick up a ALC-P mug as our gift to you for sharing service with us as our honored guest.
If you are in need of prayer, you can fill out a Prayer Card and drop it in the offering basket, too. We will then share your prayer request with the prayer team to bring your request(s) to the Lord. You may also come to the altar following service to receive prayer from an ALC-P team member
Most months on the third Sunday, we have a Deeper Worship Encounter at 6:30 p.m. This is a relaxed, lingering time of prayer and worship. Next is a camp fire Deeper Worship Encounter on Saturday, June 29 at 6:30 p.m.
