Contribute Here

At Abiding Presence, we depend on the generous support of members and friends for our ministry. While COVID-19 circumstances prevent our congregation from attending church, we'd like to let our members know that you can contribute through our online giving program. Visit this page for more information.

You can also choose to have your contribution sent directly from your bank as a one time, or a recurring contribution saving you time and postage. Simply add the congregation’s name and address on the “add payees” page of your online banking site, and your bank will send a check directly to Abiding Presence. As a benefit to the Church, it helps provide an even cash flow throughout the year helping the church more effectively and easily meet budget goals and manage expenses. 

Thank you to those who have been mailing in their offering envelopes while we have not been able to meet for worship! It is greatly appreciated since our bills must still be paid during this time. We appreciate your faithful support of our Parish.
