We are all set to begin our 7th season of Avalon Beach Church on June 21st at 9am. The New Jersey governor has raised the number for outdoor gatherings to 100 people effective immediately and he plans to increase that number to 250 on June 22nd and possibly to 500 on July 3rd. We will be asking families to maintain social distancing not only for your health but our witness as well.

HERE IS OUR THEME FOR THIS SUMMER: 2020 – VISIONS OF RAPTURE NOW BURST ON MY SIGHT!
Many of you will recognize that last phrase from the much-loved hymn “Blessed Assurance.” The hymn writer also penned this line: “Watching and waiting, looking above. Filled with His goodness, lost in His love.” Sight is at the core of this great hymn.
The irony is that Blessed Assurance was written by Fanny Crosby. As a little girl, because of the mistake of a doctor, Fanny lost her sight. But she was able to see what many miss…visions of rapture…intense joy!
THAT IS OUR “VISION” FOR ABC 2020! CAN’T WAIT FOR YOU TO JOIN US!
Bring your beach chairs, invite some friends, help us spread the word. We will be on the 30th street beach at 9am on June 21st.
Who knows what will burst on our sight!
