Your commitment to Abbey Way, through your presence, participation, and financial support has made this community an unique place for seeking God and continued discipleship in Christ. You have brought yourself into this growing and forming community of faith. Abbey Way would not be what it is without you. Thanks for being here and bringing your whole self to us this last year.
