LIFE Groups

Why LIFE Groups?

We believe that church is a place of grace; therefore, we want people to KNOW Community. 

We believe that belonging happens best in LIFE Groups; it’s where we do life together! 

The Bible challenges us to fellowship with one another, love one another,

bear one another’s burdens, and encourage one another. 

This is not easy as we are pulled by life in so many directions,

but once you find a group, you will enjoy the blessings of belonging!

Stitches of Love

Stitches of Love meets in The Cabin on the 2nd Saturday of each month from 10 am – 3 pm.

Loring Mill Campus |  1305 Loring Mill Rd

 

Stitches of Love is a quilting ministry of ADBC.  Their mission is to be the hands of Jesus by using their gifts and talents to bless others.  In addition to doing fun projects together, they make baby quilts to donate to the crisis pregnancy centers in Sumter, to the young military couples at Shaw Air Force Base who go through parenting classes, to local nursing homes, and to members of the church who have babies.  They make comfort caps for ladies who have lost their hair due to chemo or other medical reasons. 

 

We welcome those who may be interested in sewing. If you don’t know how to sew, we will teach you. There are no dues or charges to our participants.
