“So I commend the enjoyment of life, because there is nothing better for a person under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany them in their toil all the days of the life God has given them under the sun.”   Ecclesiastes 8:15 NIV

At Abiding Presence we take our fellowship and fun as gifts from God.

Did you know that fun is a noun (someone or something that is amusing or enjoyable) , a verb (to speak or act in a way that is not serious) and an adjective (amusing or enjoyable)?   It seems there is always an event or an activity going on that somehow involves fun, either as a noun or verb or adjective.


Some of the Fun we have had includes:
