About Abiding Presence

We are a progressive ELCA Lutheran church serving the greater Rochester area. We value the past but we look forward to the future. We like fun, fellowship, service to our community and a chance to take a critical look at the issues of today, with Christ as our guide.

Reconciling in Christ
