“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:
Christmas Basket Assembly Day
Young and old participate.
Progressive Dinner at Christmas Time
A popular event in December.
Benefits Habitat for Humanity.
Charity Golf and Picnic Event
This Fall event draws a large crowd and is lots and lots of fun.
“God’s work. Our hands.” Sunday
On this designated Sunday we join over 10,000 other churches from around the country in doing work in our community.
Brooksie Way Cheer Station
We cheer for the runners on Sunday morning as they round the corner at Walton and Livernois.
Blessing of the Animals
This is heartwarming and cute whether you own an animal or not.
