For the (d+1)-dimensional Lie group G=Z_p^{ imes}ltimes Z_p^{oplus d}, we determine through the use of p-power congruences, a necessary and sufficient set of conditions whereby a collection of abelian p-adic L-functions arises from an element in K_1(Z_p[[G]]). We construct an additive theta map which produces additive p-power congruences, and then using the Taylor Oliver logarithm, we arrive at a multiplicative version of these congruences. If E is a semistable elliptic curve over Q with good ordinary reduction at p, the abelian p-adic L-functions already exist, therefore one can predict many new families of higher order congruences. The first layer congruences are then verified computationally in a variety of cases. The final chapter contains computations for elliptic curves with bad multiplicative reduction at p, that the author performed for Delbourgo and Lei in [10]. All of the computations were done using the package MAGMA.
