God is a father to the fatherless.
 
Abba’s is a ministry of Apostolic Life church, created to help 6-15 year old children. We want to encourage children in our community through biblical teaching, and the testimonies of men who have overcome their own hurts, and disappointments of fatherlessness.
 
If you’re a parent who would like to bring your children, we meet on Thursday evenings beginning May 27 from 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m.

FATHERLESS IN AMERICA.
​One-in-five children under the age of 18 in the United States live with a single mother.​

Nightmares, bed wetting, withdrawal, fear, anger, anxiety, violence, stress, poor grades, gangs, drugs, alcohol. These are just a few of the symptoms of fatherless children in America today.

75% of adolescent patients in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes
 
70% of juveniles in state-operated institutions have no father

85% of youth in prison had no father in the home

90% of homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes

71% of high school dropouts come from fatherless homes

The solution is a relationship with Jesus Christ, the best Father that a child could have. Abba’s Ministry is dedicated to helping children discover a sense of belonging, comfort, hope, and peace in knowing God as Abba Father.
