Grace and peace. We miss you!
As the state of Texas begins to open, there have been questions about Abiding Presence opening to in-person worship. Nothing would be better than to see your smiling face, shake your hand, and give you a hug. The reality, however, is that for the health of all we must continue to practice safe distancing. Which means, Abiding Presence will continue to worship and study online through the month of May.
Your staff is working diligently to provide inspirational worship experiences, educational material, and updates using online platforms. We have a YouTube channel where our worship and learning videos can be found. Look for us at YouTube.com/c/abidingpresence. If you subscribe and click the bell, you will receive an email notification each time we release a new video.
Your leadership continues to monitor federal, state, and local guidelines and recommendations. We are also in close contact with our Synod leadership as we discern the next steps for this congregation. We have started planning for the logistics of gathering – in a new way. How will we seat at 25% capacity – 6 feet apart? Where will we send potential overflow? How many volunteers will it take to usher people to designated seating and clean between services? Is there a safe means for sharing communion? There is much to consider, and we promise to keep you informed.
Until we can return safely, know that we hold you in prayer, and want to know how you are. Call, email, or text us at any time, with any need. Send us your prayer requests through our website.
You are the abiding presence of Christ in the world and together we are seeking God and serving others in new ways. Take care of each other!
