Thank you for taking the time to visit this webpage. We hope that you will find the information that you are looking for as you peruse the different sections. If you are looking for a congregation, we hope that this provides a good introduction to some of the ministries that we support and engage in.
Both the church and the community have been around a long time, (check out the history page). Institutions do not survive this long without adapting and changing. Abington Presbyterian Church is well rooted in a long tradition, but it is a tradition that welcomes forward looking change. It is also a tradition where faith is manifest in love and hope.
Abington Presbyterian Church values worship and service. Our vision is "Answering Christ's Call in Our Time." At the center of our common life is Jesus Christ and we are called serve God and humanity as his disciples.
