Fellowship

Koinonia – fellowship - is key to Christian life. We share in friendship with God. We share in friendship with neighbors. We do not live unto ourselves alone. We live with others and God. The church brings us together to share in holy friendship with God, others and ourselves. One of the highlights of Sunday worship for many people is the opportunity to connect with friends. After worship, we gather for chat n coffee to catch up with each other’s stories, to meet new friends, and to enjoy tasty goodies. Goodies always taste better when with friends. In the early church, the congregation gathered for an agape meal. The idea was to celebrate the reality that God is revealed in the death and resurrection of Jesus; thus, in the midst of this sacred meal, the congregation would stop and offer gratitude to God for the gift of Jesus who now lives amongst the people of the church as the risen Lord. In time, this longer service and bigger meal was shortened to a smaller communion meal during Sunday worship. Today, we at First Christian enjoy getting together for a monthly fellowship dinner. Usually, dinner is potluck style. Bring your favorite food, and enjoy the company of good friends. While different from the early church agape meal, our fellowship dinners fit with the tradition of the early church as we enjoy meaningful friendship around good food and fellowship.
