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.
