A Message From Pastor Russ

What makes a church unique?  The church is not just a structure made of bricks and mortar; it is so much more.  It is not a perfect place for perfect people.  It is a place filled with messy people living messy lives, who are forgiven by grace.  We have been extended grace so freely that we must then extend grace freely to others. 


What I LOVE about the church IS THAT IT IS MORE than a building and programs.  It is where people come together and live as family.  From my own personal experience, there are no perfect families just as there are no perfect churches.  


At Alliance Friends Church we are a group of people who choose to come together to live as a family of faith.  We share a love for God and a love for one another.  We all have different personalities and gifts, and we sometimes disagree, but we always love.  


There is always room for one more at the table.  If you are looking for a church where you will be loved and accepted please consider coming to AFC.  We extend grace and welcome you into our family!
