We have a lot of exciting things happening in the next few months at Abiding Presence Lutheran Church.
Check out our calendar for all the upcoming events you won't want to miss!
An informative letter was mailed to the parents of Sunday school children for the upcoming Christmas pageant. If your child would like to participate, please complete the registration from that was sent and return it to the church office by mail, placing it in the offering plate, or in the basket on the display table in the narthex. The pageant is Sunday, December 23rd at the 9:00am liturgy. No prior experience is necessary and all are welcome to participate. Additional letters and forms are on the narthex table.
The Adopt-a-Family Christmas tree will soon be in the narthex with tags for requested gifts needed for children of families who are unable to provide due to limited resources. You can help make a child’s Christmas special this year by taking a tag from the tree and purchasing a requested gift. Once you have taken a tag from the tree, please sign the sheet on the narthex table. UNWRAPPED GIFTS with the tree tag attached can be placed under the Christmas tree before December 16th. Please adhere to the deadline as gifts will be delivered soon after. Monetary donations are also welcome and appreciated. Please note Adopt-a-Family on your check/donation envelope.
Volunteers are needed to help with teaching Sunday school grades 1 through 4. It's fun to teach the young! If you are interested in volunteering your time to help, please contact Greg Johnson.
2018 APLC Parish Directories are now available in the narthex. Please take one per family. If you would like the directory emailed to you, please submit your request to Debra Nicholas in the church office.
Each Sunday, members of the Altar Guild
carry out the meaningful ministry of preparing our place of
worship, in particular the celebration of the Holy Eucharist.
Members are responsible for setting the altar each Sunday,
preparing for baptisms, weddings, and funerals, and caring for
the linens, and vessels. Altar Guild members serve on a
rotation, so it is not an every Sunday responsibility, only one
Sunday a month. If you are interested in joining this ministry,
please contact Kathy Smith at 631-979-9247.
ATTENTION STUDENTS: If you are a student who
needs help meeting your community service requirements,
please contact Karen Schifellite at 631-745-6752 or
Brian Forberg at 631-418-6157. They will be happy to assist
you with a project at church.
DRIVERS NEEDED! If you are willing to drive someone to
church (and home again) once a month on a Sunday for the
