Church Works to Benefit Local Area

Abiding Presence Lutheran Church is one of nearly 10,000 congregations of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) participating in “God’s work. Our hands.” on Sunday, September 11. Across the country, thousands of ELCA members are engaging in service work to make a positive change in their communities, build and deepen relationships and share God’s love.

Members of Abiding Presence will be making and taking thank you cards to local fire and police stations for helping to keep us safe, assisting Oakland Township’s Historical Society and Cranberry Lake Farms by painting their antique farm implements, and assisting the Older Person’s Commission (OPC) with the Acts of Kindness program by assisting the elderly with window washing and yard clean up. In addition, the Warm Project at Abiding Presence will be cutting and sewing fleece hats and scarves to be donated to Baldwin Avenue Center in Pontiac.

For more than 25 years, the ELCA has been a church deeply rooted in faith and in sharing its passion for making positive changes in the world. Abiding Presence joins with other ELCA congregations across the country to boldly participate in God’s work in the world – restoring and reconciling communities, and pursuing peace and justice.

“This service day benefits a variety of charities throughout the Rochester area as well as across the country,” said Pastor Sharon Janot. “We are a church that rolls up our sleeves and gets to work. The community is invited to join us.”
