After much prayer and consideration of all that God has done and allowed to occur in our church within the past couple of years, we have made a decision to relocate with the Pflugerville community to have an even greater impact. We will begin services again on March 18, 2018, at 10:10am. See the video below for more information. Feel free to contact us if you have questions or need additional information.
Pastors Corey and April Tabor began a bible study on January 10, 2010 that was the first steps of planting Full Life Community Church. They transitioned from a home, to the Wells Branch Community Library where they officially launched Full Life on September 11, 2011. Since that time they have transitioned to the Salinas Events Center and now to their own leased space in the Dessau Palms Complex. Over 300 people have been partners of Full Life throughout the 8 year journey. This year, we are celebrating them as Pastors for the first time in the history of our church. They have served faithfully in good times and bad and are shepherds after God’s own heart. Join us in a weekend of celebration as we honor them and their service to Full Life Community Church and the Central Texas community.

In 2018, we are choosing to embrace the truth of Joshua 1:1-9 where God calls Joshua to “Be Strong and Courageous.” We believe that is God’s calling to us as a church this year.
We want to release the partners of Full Life Community Church to “Be the Church” in 2018 by being “Strong and Courageous” in alignment with the vision God has given us.

Advent is a season observed in many Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas. The term is a version of the Latin word meaning “coming”. The term “Advent” is also used in Eastern Orthodoxy for the 40-day Nativity Fast, which has practices different from those in the west.
Latin adventus is the translation of the Greek word parousia, commonly used to refer to the Second Coming of Christ. For Christians, the season of Advent anticipates the coming of Christ from three different perspectives. “Since the time of Bernard of Clairvaux (d.1153) Christians have spoken of the three comings of Christ: in the flesh in Bethlehem, in our hearts daily, and in glory at the end of time.” The season offers the opportunity to share in the ancient longing for the coming of the Messiah, and to be alert for his Second Coming.
Advent is the beginning of the Western liturgical year and commences on the fourth Sunday before Christmas (sometimes known as Advent Sunday), the Sunday nearest to St. Andrew’s Day (30 November), in the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church, the Western Rite of the Orthodox Church, and inthe Anglican, Lutheran, Moravian, Presbyterian and Methodist calendars. In the Ambrosian Rite and the Mozarabic Rite of the Catholic Church, Advent begins on the sixth Sunday before Christmas, the Sunday after St. Martin’s Day(11 November).
Practices associated with Advent include keeping an Advent calendar, lighting an Advent wreath, praying an Advent daily devotional, lighting a Christingle, as well as other ways of preparing for Christmas, such as setting up Christmas decorations, a custom that is sometimes done liturgically, through a hanging of the greens ceremony.
The equivalent of Advent in Eastern Christianity is called the Nativity Fast, but it differs in length and observances, and does not begin the liturgical church year as it does in the West. The Eastern Nativity Fast does not use the equivalent parousia in its preparatory services.

As we approach this wonderful holiday where we are given a greater level of freedom and permission, if you will to be thankful we as a church would like to thank a God for you. We realize that he has blessed us to encounter many over the 8 years of our history as a bible study and then a church plant.
Psalm 107:1 says – “Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”
2 Thessalonians 5:18 says – “give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
So in obedience to the scriptures we give thanks to the Lord for he is good and choose to give thanks in all situations.
As the old hymn says:
Whatever my lot
Thou has taught me to say
It is well
It is well
With my soul
Have a great Thanksgiving. If you’re in town and don’t have a Church home, join us Sunday for an amazing worship experience.
