Fellowship and Fun create opportunities for the members of the church to socialize with one another, and develop healthy relationships within the congregation and with the community. Jesus participated in and talked about many banquets and feasts. One example is when “Levi gave a big reception for Jesus in his house” (Luke 5:29), and Jesus was pleased to attend. The fellowship ministry organizes social events such as Friend Day, when members invite their friends and relatives to service followed by a shared meal, as well as congregational dinners and banquets. They recruit volunteers to assist with food preparation and service, and to set up facilities, decorations, equipment needs, etc.
