Fellowship

Varied fellowship opportunities with informal settings offer the chance to meet with Christians who have a desire to share God’s love. Strong bonds are formed and genuine love, support, and caring are felt.

Special times of fellowship include:

Souper Bowl Luncheon at the first of the year in which a soup lunch is offered after church on Super Bowl Sunday. All proceeds are divided between World Hunger causes and local food pantries.

A spaghetti dinner in February features entertainment which varies from year to year. This has included a womanless wedding, womanless beauty pageant, and game night.

A Birthday Bash is held each year to collectively celebrate the birthdays of all of our members. Steak dinners are enjoyed, followed by a lively evening of entertainment, featuring the talents of many of our own.

The annual Men’s Master Chef event is held in the summer, with the coveted green apron awarded to the man or boy who prepares the best dessert.

The Independence Celebration in July allows us to meet as a church family for a cook-out, to honor our veterans, and to refelct on our blessings as Americans.

A Church-wide Lake Day is enjoyed during the summer months with an afternoon of swimming, boating, skiing, a hot dog supper, homemade ice cream, and Vespers service by the lake.

A Fall Outreach Fellowship at the park provides a wonderful opportunity for church family and guests to gather after morning worship for lunch and a time to get to know each other better.

Homecoming in the fall is an opportunity for former members, current members, and families to return to their roots for worship and a covered dish meal.

The annual Thanksgiving Dinner affords us the chance to gather in thanksgiving for God’s goodness to us. Music and testimony to God’s greatness are included in the program.  This dinner is held the Sunday evening before Thanksgiving.

Church-wide caroling and a fellowship soup supper gives us time to share Christmas with shut-ins and to gather back at the church for fellowship.

Other opportunities are enjoyed periodically throughout the year.
