Once again, we at Abiding Presence can celebrate Advent, the coming of our Lord Jesus with the joyful experience of sharing with those in need. In our immediate area there are families who without our help would face the despair of having to tell their children that there will be no gifts on Christmas morning because there is not enough money to pay for food, heat, and utilities. We will again turn this sad situation into one of joy as we follow Jesus' example of caring for other's needs. This year due to the pandemic, Adopt-A-Family Christmas Tree Giving will be done online. If you wish to take part in celebrating the birth of Jesus in this special way please follow the link here for information on how you can give.
UNWRAPPED GIFTS can be dropped off at church on or before DECEMBER 13th, during church office hours (please call ahead 631-269-6454), on Monday night, or dropped off at Cyndi Nichols' home, 274 Ocean Avenue Northport NY. Please label all gifts with the family number, child letter, and gift.
Example: Family 67, Child B, sneakers size 7. If you do not see any items listed here, it means that all of the gifts have been purchased. Gift cards are always welcome! Kindly email email@example.com or call 631-896-9542 with questions or concerns.
Thank you for your generosity!
