Mission Trips- ABC is passionate about mission outreach! Many members of our church and community have become “mission trippers”, working hard to fundraise in order to travel to New Orleans, Inuvik, Puerto Rico, Cuba and Alberta. The faithful support of our church family has enabled them to hone their cleaning and painting skills, teach Bible School and bring hope to others, especially those devastated by natural disasters. Our next mission trip is in 2016.
