THIS WEEK AT ABINGTON PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH

November 18, 2018

APC Members and Friends:

I look forward to moving into Thanksgiving week.  There is much for which to be grateful and there will be expressions of gratitude at worship this Sunday, November 18.  At services at 8 and 10 our scripture focus will be Joel 2:21-27 and 1 Timothy 2:1-7.  The sermon is entitled, ‘With Thanksgivings.’  Adult Forum this Sunday will meet at 8:45 in the Parlor to hear a program led by the Director of Religious Programming for the Islamic Cultural Center of Willow Grove, Madiha Irfan, who will give an introduction to Islamic spirituality.  The bible study class, led by Dr. Stephen Kim, meets at 8:45 in Room 108, focusing on the Book of Jonah.

We are thankful for the ministry of our Deacons, who will be using your donations to provide Thanksgiving food baskets to 42 families this Saturday.

The Abington Community Thanksgiving service is a chance for expressions of gratitude and for building community.  For 67 years, APC and Temple Beth Am have been among the primary partners in this service as a Christian/Jewish expression of gratitude unto God.  We have the joyful task of hosting the 68th interfaith Thanksgiving service this year.  Since the Islamic Cultural Center of Willow Grove opened in the past year, and with very positive interactions that we have had with their leadership, I am delighted that for the first time, the interfaith Thanksgiving service this year will recognize three religions instead of two.  I urge all who are able to come help us be a welcoming community and to be enriched in the process.  In this gathering, we also are standing against those who spread hatred and intolerance based on religion.  The service will be Tuesday, November 20 at 7:30 p.m.  The offering will go to the Interfaith Food Cupboard in Roslyn (you can bring canned goods or make a financial donation).

Go ahead and put on your calendar:

Hanging of the Greens and the Advent Fair will be held Sunday, December 2 from 4-5:30 p.m., followed by a crock pot potluck dinner.  You’ll have opportunity to make a live greenery advent wreath ($20 per wreath).  You can also be part of the team to decorate the hallways and sanctuary, as well as joining in with the Christmas carol sing-a-long.

Theological Book Club, Saturday, December 8 at 8 a.m. reading James Cone’s The Cross and the Lynching Tree.

Thanks to all who have gotten their 2019 orange pledge cards turned in.  We are making progress in having the giving information that Session will need to adopt a budget for the coming year.  Our Stewardship theme has been “Blessed to Share Abundantly,” and we are hoping that APC lives out that theme.  Each and every pledge card is important to move us toward the ministry goals for next year, including calling a new full-time associate pastor for Christian Education and Youth Ministry.  If you have not yet turned in a pledge card for 2019, please bring it to worship and place it in the offering plate this Sunday or mail it to the church office at 1082 Old York Road, Abington, PA 19001.  Thank you!!!

Thanks also to all involved with the Youth Pancake Brunch last Sunday.  What a delicious way to raise almost a thousand dollars for the youth scholarship fund!

With gratitude for APC,

Kirby Lawrence Hill
