For The Beauty of The Earth; Abiding Presence Choir


Through worship, service, and education, we practice our faith, grow in our relationship with God and experience God's grace in our lives.


At Abiding Presence on Sunday, we give thanks to God for 60 years of ministry in this community and commit ourselves

to carrying this ministry forward in the name of Jesus as the Spirit leads us.

This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent. In the past, God came to us in the life of Jesus. In the present, God comes especially in word and sacrament. In the future, even if there is disaster, God will come to gather us into life. This Sunday we light the first candle on our Advent wreath, and we begin a year-long reading from the Gospel of Mark.

In an effort to provide members with easy access to online giving, we created a QR (Quick Response) code.

A QR code is a type of bar code that is used to access online information through your smartphone.

To use the QR code, simply open the camera app on your phone. Point the camera at the QR code. Tap the banner that appears on your phone. Then follow the instructions to complete your transaction. 

We hope that this will be a convenient way to provide a safe, contactless method of giving for our members.

If you wish to set up reoccurring donations, visit out GIVING page here.


In the days before the pandemic (sometimes it's difficult to remember that time!) a group of loving people would bring Holy Communion directly from worship (before the benediction) to homebound members who were unable to attend church. We would love to restart this important ministry. Whether you were one of those ministers or think you might like to be one now, please let Pastor know. A training/informational meeting will be scheduled. 

Once we restart this ministry, we will cease weekly distribution of the Sacrament in front of the church following worship.


Altar Flowers, Sanctuary Candle, Candles of Grace, and Holy Communion (Wine and Bread) may be dedicated each week by filling out one of the altar charts located on the wall near the coat closet entrance in the church narthex. 

You can also call the church office at 631-269-6454 with your dedication request.

The dedication may be “In Loving Memory of...” or “In Honor/Celebration of...” and will be shown in print in the bulletin of the Sunday you requested. Money donated towards altar dedications is used to offset the cost of supplies and materials that are used in various dedications. 

You will be sent an invoice for your dedication. Please see the cost of each below.

Altar Flowers -$40.00  ($55.00 as of January 1, 2024)

Candles of Grace - $20.00

Sanctuary (Vigil) Candle - $15.00

Holy Communion (Wine and Bread) - $15.00

Thank you in advance for your support.
