The APLC Women's Book Club is currently reading the following:

The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post by Allison Pataki
A wife four times over, Marjorie sought her happily-ever-after with the blue-blooded party boy who could not outrun his demons, the charismatic financier whose charm turned to betrayal, the international diplomat with a dark side, and the bon vivant whose shocking secrets would shake Marjorie and all of society.

The next meeting is Thursday, February 9 at 6:30 pm.

For further information please contact Karen Wallin at kwalliny@live.com.

The Souper Bowl of Caring began more than 20 years ago with a simple prayer from a single youth group, “Lord as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us to be mindful of those without even a bowl of soup to eat.”

Cans of any type of soup, non-perishable foods and supermarket gift cards are being collected in the narthex through Sunday 2/19. Monetary contributions are also appreciated. Checks can be made payable to Abiding Presence Lutheran Church (please indicate “Food Pantry” or “Souper Bowl” in the memo line). Canned goods and non-perishable foods can also be ordered online and shipped directly to Abiding Presence Church.

We will donate our collection to the Northport Food Pantry. Thank you in advance!

For questions please text or email Sarah Krisch skrisch02@gmail.com.
