Hosting Fellowship Hour

Coffee Hour - What Can I Do? It's as simple as 1-2-3!!

1) Join a Team!

  • Joining a team helps everyone share the cost and work of providing a meal on a Sunday.
  • Teams are ideally comprised of 3 members or families, with one person designated as a "Team Lead". This Team Lead acts as a primary point of contact.
  • If we have a lot of teams, then the schedule becomes nicely spread out. Join TODAY!

2) Bring Food!

The real 'meat' of the ministry (see what I did there?). This is pretty straightforward, just work with your team as to what you want to bring, but here's a couple of things to keep in mind:

  1. It doesn't have to be a four course meal, but shouldn't be chips and crackers either. The idea is that as a team, no one feels overwhelmed with what, or how much, they should bring.
  2. Portions! Instead of cutting a bagel in half, cut in quarters! Simple things like this can be applied across the board. 
  3. Ask around for ideas. Our teams have been quite resourceful. Or hey, search the internet for ideas too.

3) Clean Up!

It's everyone's favorite part--cleaning! Seriously though, this isn't overly complicated. The team should stick around and clean up the eating are. Here's the highlights:

  1. Wipe down tables with cleaner and paper towels.
  2. Ditto for the food tables in hall and kitchen.
  3. Empty coffee pot and grinds.
  4. Sweep up any necessary areas.
  5. Take out trash and put new bags in.

That's it! Believe me, it doesn't take very long and remember, it's a team effort!
