9th Sunday after Pentecost

             Abiding Hope Lutheran Church     2402 W. Grandview Blvd. Erie PA 16506

July 25, 2021

Today is the first of five Sundays with gospel readings from John 6, the first four of which focus on Jesus as bread of life. Today Jesus feeds thousands of people with five loaves and two fish. What we have, what we bring to Jesus’ table, seems like it is not nearly enough to meet all the needs we see around us. But it is not the adequacy of our supplies or our skills that finally makes the difference: it is the power of Jesus working in the littlest and least to transform this world into the world God desires, a world where all the hungry are satisfied.

Sunday Services in-person 9:30 AM each Sunday or live-streamed on Facebook or can be viewed anytime on this website.  Enjoy a brief, spoken word worship service with Holy Communion each Saturday evening at 5:30 PM in the sanctuary. Interim Pastor Karen Parsh presiding.  

Abiding Hope's

For about twenty years, Ed Whitbred has been part of a group called “The Amazing Grays”.  This collection of seniors has been producing a weekly show geared to older adults through the facilities of Community Access Media.

Today we present an interview with Abiding Hope's own Judi Pacileo and as she "Shares her Stuff".  This will appear on CAM’s normal outlets as well as YouTube, Facebook and this website.

In the coming weeks Ed will be presenting a series of member interviews titled “Sharing Our Stuff”. Interviews will last about fifteen minutes through the wonderful world of Zoom.

We will ask our volunteer guests to show 3 - 5 items that are meaningful to them. And we will  simply have a conversation about them. This is a series Amazing Grays did a number of years ago and was constantly surprised at what came thru the door. It was interesting, entertaining and occasionally moving.

If you are interested in sharing  your stuff, please contact Ed at, or 814 397 0990 cell/text.

On Sunday February 14th at the 9:30 service, Theo Edwin Riggle, son of Mark and Jessica Riggle and grandson of Kevin and Andrea Petrone, was baptized into God’s family by Pastor Allie. Big brother Henry witnessed the event along with sponsors Uncle Ryan and Aunt Amy Carlisle and cousins Alice and Penny Rose. A prayer shawl was given to Theo to honor the occasion. It was a joyful, happy baptism.
