Become & Multiply
"New York City proved to be one of the most diverse cities in the world. Our high school missions team ministered to people from many different religions, nationalities and languages. They were able to share the hope of the gospel with children and adults through word and actions. It's evident that our students will be forever changed by this opportunity. They were able to have a better global perspective on how God is at work. Many thanks again for your prayers and financial support to see the Kingdom of God advance to the nations!"

-JP Poisson, Student Pastor

Announcements, Updates, & Happenings
College Connection
Happenings this summer

Check out two College Connection updates for Summer:
1. Sunday night Bible study (book of Titus) at 6pm at Josh Teeters' house (365 Castle Ford Rd). We’d love to have recent high school grads to join us!
2. Wednesdays will be hangouts and events. These events will be posted to the College Connection Facebook Group and Instagram (@abfcollegeconnection).
Adopt-A-Cop

While a bulletproof vest affords a certain level of protection for officers, an even greater blessing and shield of protection can be found in the power of prayer. The goal of Adopt-A-Cop is to assign every individual officer to a person or family who will pray for them on a daily basis and send an occasional note offering encouragement, prayer support, and gratitude for the service they provide. If you wish to participate, you may email Trish at TrishLKanipe@gmail.com to sign up.
de la Cruz Dinner and Teaching
July 15 & 16 (and other dates)

Alliance supports de la Cruz, a local ministry in Boone that provides safe, interactive experiences for individuals to know God through faith in Jesus Christ in a horse and farm environment. Check out their upcoming public event for families! Other events are happening July 29 & 30 and August 12 & 13 as well.

This person will report directly to the Children’s Pastor. CLICK HERE for the full job description. Email resumes and cover letters to abfoffice@abfboone.org.

Host Homes Needed Next Month
Host International students (fully vaccinated) for the weekend! July 16-18 the International Friendship Ministries chapter at University of South Carolina will bring 20 students to spend a few days in our area enjoying some cooler weather and mountain activities. This is the same group that usually comes to snow ski in February and since this year's trip was a 'casualty of Covid', we decided to invite them in the summer! They will arrive Friday, July 16th evening, spend Saturday doing various activities and Sunday morning attend worship service with us. You can host one or more students OR if you'd rather lead an activity or do an activity with a group you can do that also. To be a host home you need to pick them up at church Friday night, provide Saturday breakfast/supper and Sunday breakfast. Please let the church office know how many students you want, what gender and if you want to participate in Saturday activities.

Need Old Vehicles for Beater or Better
Alliance needs your old vehicle for our ministry, Beater or Better. We give old vehicles to people in need in our community. The vehicle doesn't have to be running (we know mechanics to get ‘em running again). If you have an old vehicle you want to give away, email the office at abfoffice@abfboone.org.

The Colson Fellows Program
One of our Elders, Barrie Winn, will be leading a group through The Colson Fellows Program. This is a 10-month program for Christians to take a “deep dive” into worldview and culture, learning how to engage the culture with the Christian worldview and developing plans for their personal ministry. The program runs from August through the following May, and applications for the 2021-22 program are now being accepted. Questions? Contact Barrie Winn at barrie.winn@gmail.com.
