Abiding Presence is not currently gathering for in person worship due to the high COVID positivity rate and increasing numbers of cases in our area.
We continue to listen to our Synod and local officials for guidelines to safely gather again in person.
A recorded worship service is offered each weekend, beginning at 5:30 Saturday evening.
The service is available through the weekend on our Facebook page and our YouTube channel. Subscribe to our channel, click the bell for notifications and you’ll receive an email when each new video is available.
To fully participate in online worship we suggest having a Bible available to read the scripture lessons, sing the hymns, and join with the community in prayer.
This Week’s Worship
Worship at Abiding Presence
In worship we gather in community to hear the Word of God, to pray for those in need, to offer thanks to God for the gift of salvation, to receive the bread of life and the cup of blessing, and to be renewed for the daily witness of faith, hope, and love.
You’ll experience rich traditions in liturgy and song, whether proclaiming our faith with a creed learned long ago or singing a praise song you heard on the radio last week. Each week is different in message, but familiar in a pattern of gathering, hearing the Word of God, sharing the meal, and being sent to share the Good News of Christ with family, friends, and the greater community.
Holy Communion is celebrated in each weekend worship service at Abiding Presence. It is here that we receive the gift of God’s forgiveness and loving acceptance. Everyone is welcome at the Lord’s table.
Families worship together at Abiding Presence. Children sit with their parents in worship. In a children’s message, they hear the Gospel story told specially with them. Children can also grab an activity bag or children’s bulletin to help them be engaged. Nursery care is available for infants and children up to age four during all worship services.
Worship is enriched with music provided by ensembles of all ages. Members participate as greeters, ushers, assisting ministers, acolytes, readers, and communion assistants. The sanctuary walls are often adorned with various forms of art expressing the beauty and mystery of transforming faith.
