Through a generous memorial gift from one of our families, we have established a fund to install air conditioning in Good Shepherd Hall. Having air conditioning in our fellowship hall (the only area of the church not currently with air conditioning) will make its use during the summer months more pleasant for us, and will enable outside groups to rent it for events during those hot months. A generous donor has made a pledge to match up to $5,000 of additional gifts made to the fund. Gifts to the fund may be made in memory or honor of loved ones, or just to the glory of God. Online contributions can be made here.
Through a generous gift of Erwin Zimmermann in memory of Bill Atkinson, a scholarship fund has been established at Abiding Presence. Bill’s sister, Martha Haynes, also made a gift to the fund in memory of her brother. The fund is not intended to be a memorial for Bill Atkinson only. Gifts to the fund may be made in memory or in honor of your loved ones, or just in thanksgiving to God. The standards and amounts of scholarships have yet to be established, but applications will be open to students from Abiding Presence, Trinity Wyandanch and St. Andrew Ellsworth Maine. If you would like to make an online donation to the APLC Scholarship Fund, please visit this page. Be sure to indicate APLC Scholarship Fund in the comments.
