New to Abiding Presence Lunch

Welcome to Abiding Presence! We're glad you are here and want to help you get connected to the congregation. Join Pastor Keseley and others from the church leadership team for a family-friendly lunch to learn about the church and meet others in our faith family. We'll eat some food, share a bit about the congregation and answer questions. Kids are most welcome to attend and we'll have some fun for them after lunch while the adults talk. There's no need to bring anything but yourself as we'll provide all the food. If you are interested in formally joining the congregation, we will have paperwork available to do so. We will welcome new members into the congregation on Sunday, October 6 at either the 8:45 or 11:00 a.m. services. RSVP. If you have any questions or dietary restrictions, please be in touch with Pastor Keseley.
