THIRD GRADE BIBLE PRESENTATION

It is a longstanding tradition of Abiding Presence Lutheran Church to present each third grader with a personalized Bible. The Bibles are used in our Sunday School program. 


Join us on October 2 at 9am for Bible Presentation Sunday. If your child is in grade 4 or 5 and have not received a Bible, they are welcome to join us and receive one.


If you cannot be present, but your child will be attending Sunday School and would like a Bible, please call the church office 631-269-6454.



PARISH DIRECTORY UPDATE

We are in the process of updating our Parish Directory.  Changes can be emailed to nicholas.debbie@yahoo.com or completed forms can be placed in the basket on the narthex table or mailed to the church office.  All changes must be submitted by Sunday, October 9. 


Ample time is needed to update the church database and print the directories. Update forms are also available at church. 


Printed directories will be available to the congregation on Sunday, October 16.

BLESSING OF ANIMALS

Bring your pets for a special blessing on Sunday, October 2 at 11am. Blessing of Animals will take place in the outdoor chapel adjacent to the lower parking lot.  We kindly ask that you have pets leashed or caged for everyone's safety.


In case of rain, the service will be held in Good Shepherd Hall.

TAIZE WORSHIP AND PRAYER SERVICE

Our first Taizé of the season will be Friday, October 14, at 7pm. . Taizé is a simple combination of repetitive prayer in song combined with periods of silent reflection. The worship space is candlelit and peaceful. You may sit in silence or participate in songs led by our musicians. All is very prayerful and contemplative.  We hope that you will join us.

All are Welcome!
