Fun

Fun

“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.

Game Night

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.

    Abiding Presence Lutheran Church, 1550 Walton Blvd, Rochester Hills, MI 48309, USA

    As a part of our congregational discernment this Fall, an eight week small group is being offered to help us focus on listening to God’s call for Abiding Presence. Our time together will focus on 4 sessions of guided discussion and 4 sessions of experiences in prayer. This group experience will run on Tuesday evenings from October 1st – November 19th from 7 – 8:30 pm.

    Our first session will take place on Tuesday, October 1st, and will focus on the Accompaniment model of ministry used by the ELCA in overseas mission work, and increasingly in domestic mission. This way of being in partnership with community groups emphasizes that we as church don’t have ‘the answer’ but that we discover methods and actions together with our partner organization. Accompaniment acknowledges that ministry partners learn from each other and work together to make an action plan. It is more than taking on a new church project.

    Wine and snacks will be served, and our session will end promptly at 8:30 pm. Come to learn and explore a new and viable model for congregational ministry in the community where we live.

    Oktoberfest Dinner and Silent Auction Friday October 25th 6:30pm

    Please join us for this exciting adult fellowship and fundraiser for our church. We will start the evening with previewing silent auction items and enjoying a taste of german beer, followed by a delicious German Buffet catered by Rivercrest. After dessert and coffee (did someone say apple strudel?) we will close out the auction and announce the winners.

    To make this a great event WE NEED YOU! First, please think of what you can contribute to the silent auction such as vacation home stays, homemade items, making a dinner for 4 or 6 people, providing a service....let you imagination go wild. Please sign up what you can provide on the bulletin as well as signing up for the dinner. Our goal is to raise much needed money for our budget deficit.

    Tickets are just $25 per person with an RSVP soft deadline of Sunday October 20. You can pay at the door.
