It’s pretty obvious that we all, or most anyway, enjoy Coffee Hour, even if it’s just to get a cup of coffee or tea and wander off to an Adult Ed session down the hall. For many, coffee or tea is vital. For others it’s a nice social amenity. But whatever the need or reason, the Social Hall is always abuzz with good conversation and good cheer between or after the worship services.
Each Sunday the Congregational Fellowship Ministry hosts Coffee Hour between the worship services in the Social Hall. Coffee, a selection of teas, bagels and cream cheese are offered. This is a time when congregation members can gather, visit and catch up.
So to make sure this lively part of our Sunday mornings stays healthy, there are a few things you can do to help.
1 – Become a member of the Congregational Fellowship Committee. Its ministry is simply to provide fellowship. We do this by hosting Coffee Hour every Sunday, providing kitchen help and food for special events like the annual Tailgate, the Hat Dances, staff and member celebrations, etc. To become a Member-At-Large, simply contact any of the CFMU members or church staff and we’ll get you the information you need. OR – just come to one of our meetings – the first Tuesday of each month at 7:30 pm. They’re usually fun and we manage to take care of business quickly.
2 – Sign up to be a Coffee Hour Helper. A rotation of Committee Members is responsible for hosting each Sunday, but additional hands are always needed and appreciated. It’s fun, and a great way to meet new people or visit with friends.
