Our post worship Connection Time (aka: Coffee Hour) has an important role in the life of our church. It gives us an opportunity to reach out and connect with one another in a casual way - to offer friendship, support, laughter, etc...
Most of us enjoy this post worship time and would like to help with hosting it. If you are thinking about or have singed up to host one Sunday, there are a few minor instructions listed below:
-Choose one or more Sundays that you would be willing to host. It is much easier to do if you gather a few friends to join in hosting with you. Sign up on the sheet that is located in the Great Room.
-Prepare a food station with finger food, napkins, paper plates, utensils, and a donation jar.
-Prepare a drink station with juice, teas, sweeteners, stirrers, napkins, "small trash" bin, carafes filled with milk and half-and-half, coffee cups, and juice cups.
-Make regular coffee, decaf coffee, and hot water for tea. Directions ar located in the kitchen.
3. PROVIDE FOOD
-Bring any food you would like to share. It can be store made or home made. Nothing fancy and there doesn't need to be a lot of it. Examples: cookies, brownies, fruit, cheese, pretzels, bagels, muffins, cake...
Prepare the Great Room and Kitchen for the next group to use the rooms:
-Package up leftover food and label with the date.
-Wipe down Great Room tables.
-Clean up the kitchen.
-Wash dirty dishes.
-Take all trash out to dumpster.
-Put used linens into the laundry hamper located in the kitchen.
-Sweep or vacuum floor if needed.
*We are also looking for a person (or persons) to purchase our supplies. You will be reimbursed for the expenses.
