Thanksgiving Social

Thanksgiving Social (11-14-17)We want to extend an invitation for you to join us this Tuesday evening for our Thanksgiving Social. We will be meeting at The Venue and Company located at 15483 Lee Hwy, Bristol, VA at 7:00 P.M. and we would love to have you with us.

This will simply be a time to enjoy the company of friends, new and old, in a relaxed and informal setting. A time of food and fellowship. You do not need to dress up. We want to take time out and celebrate this season with you and give God thanks for His many blessings.

We understand that many will soon be feasting on Turkey, dressing, and all the fixin’s with their families, but we wanted to spend a portion of the holiday season with you as well. With that in mind, the menu will vary from a typical Thanksgiving meal. There will be pulled pork sandwiches, ham sliders, chicken salad sandwiches, potato salad, baked beans, various desserts, and Coke products to drink. We will have some activities planned for children so that people of all ages can enjoy the evening.

Some do not have an extended family to spend this season with and we want you to come and feel a part of our family. Please do not feel like you need to be a member to attend. This is intended for everyone to come and enjoy. We expect the event to be completed by 8:30, but you are welcome to leave at your leisure. We do hope to see you there!


God Is In Control

Church in the Valley This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it. Ps. 118:24

Control – It’s something we want to possess, but so often feel like we have so little of. It’s not that our motives are always wrong for wanting to be in control, it’s just that we want to determine the outcome or at least know what the outcome will be.  Often, we think we know how much better things could turn out if we were in control of the outcome. If that’s you; relax. God is in control and He always knows what’s best. He knows how it’s going to turn out because our God is already there. He is eternal and nothing catches Him by surprise.

The psalmist tells us that “this is the day which the Lord hath made.” The word “made” means more than the fact that the Lord created this day. If you look up the word “made” in it’s root form it means “to govern, to maintain, to have charge of.” What it really means is God is in control of this day! That should cause you to breathe a sigh of relief this morning and be able to go ahead and rejoice (by faith) and be glad in this day knowing He is in control!

Why not join us this Tuesday evening as we rejoice together in this day? There will not be another one just like it. Take opportunity to celebrate it with us at 7:30 P.M. We will look forward to seeing you!

Now go enjoy your day and don’t allow worry rob you from being glad. God bless!

Sermons From Psalms

Psalms Book of Psalms pic)This Tuesday we plan to continue our series entitled Sermons From Psalms. We completed Psalms 1 last week so we will move to another chapter this Tuesday. We are expecting this to be an enjoyable evening as we look into the Word of God together and we hope you make plans to join us.

You may want to bring a notepad and pen to take notes as we study the Word of God together. We will open our hearts as we open our Bibles and we expect God to speak to us from His Word. Please come and be a part of this exciting study. We will begin at 7:30, but doors will open at 7:00 P.M. for those who can come early to pray. We look forward to spending a portion of our evening with you!

Class on the Grass


Class on the GrassThis coming Sunday (9/24) is the first day of Fall and what a beautiful day it is going to be. The weather is supposed to be in the upper 80’s and clear. There will probably not be many more Sundays quite that warm as we are approaching the cooler months and we want the children to be able to enjoy the sunshine while they learn about the Word of God. We are calling this “Class on the Grass” (although they do not have to sit on the grass).

Most children love outdoors and they will enjoy learning  about God and His ways in a fun and exciting atmosphere while the adults enjoy the comforts of an air conditioned building. We will begin with a worship service for all ages and then we will dismiss the children to go outside with their teachers for a time of instruction.

Young or not so young, there’s a place for you at The Apostolic of Abingdon this coming Sunday. Tell a friend about it and come  worship with us! Service begins at 2:00, but doors open at 1:30 P.M. for those who can come early to pray. We look forward to seeing each of you!


Sermons from Psalms



Make plans to join us this Tuesday evening as we continue with our Sermons From Psalms study. We have been exploring the beauty of Psalms chapter 1 and we would love to have you with us as we intend to complete this chapter.

Tuesdays are a highlight in our week. The Bible Study nights at The Apostolics of Abingdon are both enlightening and encouraging. It’s a good way just to lighten your load and help you get a little relief from the challenges of life. It’s a time to step aside from the daily routines and get a “fresh breath of air.”  We relax and enjoy the company of others and most importantly, the presence of God. We pray together, laugh together, rejoice together, and sometimes even cry together. There’s nothing quite like it!

Why not give it a try this Tuesday evening? It could be the very thing you’re looking for to help you through some tough times that life presents us. It may just be a good opportunity to connect with others that have a desire to learn more about God and His Word. Bible Study begins at 7:30, but doors open at 7:00 for those who can come early to pray. We look forward to our time together with you!

The Finish Line

Finish Line

That will be our focus (“Lord willing”) this Sunday. We plan to discuss some keys from the Word of God to making it all the way. We are nearing the finish line and we certainly don’t want to stop short of finishing the race.

Please join us this Sunday afternoon at 2:00 for an encouraging time in the Word of God. Bring a friend and come worship the Lord with us!

Do I Have To?

Girl with BroccoliGoing to church should be more than a have to situation; it should be a get to! Church does not have to be bland and boring. Sunday service does not have to start at ten o’clock sharp and end at twelve o’clock dull. The Psalmist David said, “I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord” (Psalm 122:1). Church can be exciting and engaging! It can be something you look forward to and not dread.

For some, going to church and enduring the lifeless singing and heartless preaching can seem more like a hostage situation. Singing that doesn’t promote heartfelt worship toward God and allow the participants opportunity to express their gratitude toward that God seems like a waste of time to many. Sermons that do not come from the heart never touch the heart and therefore parishoners are leaving the same way they came. Sitting through a lengthy service that leaves folks unchanged and unchallenged is pointless to those who then seek fulfillment by another means.

If you have tried religion and it left you disappointed, let me invite you to worship with us. If you are attending a church out of obligation, but it’s leaving you empty and unchanged, please visit with us soon.

We offer Sunday Word and Worship at 2:00 P.M. and Tuesday evening Bible Study at 7:30 P.M. We would love to have you to join us at your earliest convenience. While you are considering our invitation, why not take a few minutes and get familiar with us by visiting the other tabs at the top of this page. You will want to click on the What To Expect tab as there is some pertinent information concerning your visit. If you have any questions we also encourage you to contact us via the email or phone number listed and we will attempt to answer your questions in a timely manner.

The church is conveniently located at 15540 Lee Highway in between Skyland Coin and Jewelry and Economy Inn. If you are traveling on I-81, you can use Exit 10. We look forward to seeing you!

“O taste and see that the Lord is good” (Psalm 34:8).
