Service Opportunities at Abiding Word

There are many opportunities for serving our Lord; something for every personality and every situation. It is our desire that every member of the congregation experience the blessings that come from active
participation in Bible study and service. With prayer, review these options and find areas of interest that
appeal to you.

We will be in touch with you to get invloved in the areas you choose.
“There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same
Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men.” 1 Cor. 12:4
