Welcome to Abundant Life Fellowship in New Waterford, Ohio. We are a nondenominational church grounded in biblical teaching, intimate worship, and love for one another and the community around us. At Abundant Life Fellowship, everyone is welcome, so please come visit us! We're beginning 2014 with an intentional effort to "BE STILL" daily for at least 10 minutes to watch for and listen to what the Lord is saying to his people personally and corporately. Join us. 


Several rooms at Abundant Life Fellowship have been remodeled and/or redecorated this summer to allow for expansion of growing ministries.

The kitchen project, which was funded partially through last year's spring rummage sale, included new cupboards, upgraded equipment and redesigned space to allow for greater efficiency.

The visitors room, once referred to as The Gold Room, has now become The Cafe, with tables and chairs and a table for small-group meetings.

A nursery room on the southeast wing has been converted to a prayer room with couches, chairs and soft decor. Located off the hallway just outside the back of the sanctuary, it allows for prayer privacy after a service, small group prayer gatherings as well as a comfortable dressing room for men in a wedding party.

To be finished soon is the largest project, the renovated lower level into what will become the permanent home of the Transformation Station children's ministry.
