Connection Time (post-worship fellowhip)

CONNECTION TIME: This hour after the worship service allows us to deepen our relationships with each other while enjoying light refreshments.

 

Our post-worship Connection Time (aka Coffee Hour) has an important role in the life of our congregation. 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 like to help with the hosting of it. To host one Sunday, here are a few minor instructions:

1. SIGN-UP

-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 located in the Great Room near the kitchen door.

2. SET-UP

-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 are located in the kitchen.

3. PROVIDE FOOD

-Bring any food you would like to share. It can be store-made or homemade. Nothing fancy and there doesn't need to be a lot of it. Examples: cookies, brownies, fruit, cheese, pretzels, bagels, muffins, cake... or no food - it's your choice!

4. CLEAN-UP

Prepare the Great Room and Kitchen for the next group to use the room:

-Package up leftover food and take it home.

-Wipe down Great Room tables.

-Clean up the kitchen.

-Wash dirty dishes.

-Take all trash out to dumpster (located in the parking lot outside from the stairs that lead from the far end of the Great Room).

-Put used linens into the laundry hamper located in the kitchen.

-Sweep or vacuum floor if needed.
