Fellowship Team Hospitality is an important part of our church and the Fellowship Team is an important part of that hospitality. The Fellowship Team consists of six teams of four or five persons or couples that provide coffee hour each twice a year. It involves making the coffee, setting out supplies, providing a snack, and tidying up. The snack can be as simple or as elaborate as brings YOU joy. Some people like to bake (some don’t). Some people love Costco (well who doesn’t). Cookies are fine! Would you like to join in the fun? There are openings on ALL of the teams. If you’re interested, contact Carey Morrill, Fellowship Team Leader at 253-202-5871 or mark your Connection Card.
