Our deepest passion is to run after intimacy in a personal relationship with the Lord. That continues to be our primary motivation for all we do, “Loving God and Loving People”.
Manifest God’s Love for Others
Abounding Love began as a pioneer church. Pastors Chuck and Mary Beth first had a vision to begin Abounding Love in May 2008. They began meeting in the Langdon’s farm house — a place steeped in spiritual heritage. Shortly thereafter, the church outgrew the front porch and moved to Faith Plaza, where they continue to meet today.
Since its inception the church has made an impact on the community of Ravena, the Capital region and abroad. In 2009 God directly led the church to begin three ministries — food, clothing and healing. All three were launched successfully in 2010 and continue to thrive as part of Abounding Love’s outreach.
In June, 2010 they opened the Hope Full Life Center to assist low income and disadvantaged community members in receiving inexpensive food and household supplies. In September, 2010, the Gracefully Chic Boutique was opened to the community as a fashionable place to purchase gently used clothing.
Give To Others
In 2012 we formed the Hope Full Life Center community non-profit corporation, meeting tangible needs with Helping Harvest; a food assistance program, Gracefully Chic Boutique; fashionable, gently used clothing, Peace of Home; furniture, housewares and gifts, and Cross Culture Market; international fair trade gifts.
Pastors Chuck and Mary Beth continue to have a passion for showing the love of God through serving others and actively pursuing unity among local Christian churches.
Abounding Love has a heart for missions. Their missions initiative includes creating sustainable income through Cross Culture Market, supporting two missionaries to North Africa and Jordan, going and sending people on short term mission trips and supporting other mission projects.
