But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. Hebrews 13:16

Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

Beacon Bible Church Potluck Dinners

Every Sunday we head to church and sit with the same people. How often do we make a point of going out of our way to speak to a visitor or reach out to those we see on a weekly basis? What do we really know about the individuals that make up the members of our church?

Potluck dinners are a golden opportunity to interact with those we worship with. Engaging in conversation with visitors during the meal is a great way to witness to them and make new friends. It also goes a long way toward enhancing the family atmosphere that is commonly shared among our church members.

Dining together as a church family enriches our relationships with one another. It also provides a wonderful opportunity for companionship for those that live alone. The time spent sharing a meal gives us a chance to converse with those we see briefly before and after church. What better way to get acquainted with visitors and new members of the congregation then over a yummy piece of pie? Sharing in the Lord’s bounty also allows us time to find out something new about the other members of our congregation. It is a time to relax, enjoy great food, and to spend time together as a church family.

As we journey through this unsettling world we live in, making and having friends that share the same beliefs and values are very important. Therefore, Beacon Bible Church strives to provide an atmosphere for spiritual and social growth and support for its members and visitors.

Church potluck dinners are unique in that everyone has something to offer---cookies, cherry pie, salads, casseroles. As a church family, we are in this together so we come, share and enjoy fellowship with each other. It is a time we can enjoy casual conversations and savor each bite. It is a great way to witness to others and make new friends. These moments unify our church family through word, action and deed straight to our mind, emotions and physical body.
