What is fellowship? Fellowship means being a part of a group, a body of people. It is the opposite of isolation, solitude, loneliness, and our present-day independent kind of individualism. It means sharing common interests, feelings, beliefs, goals, experiences, etc. It doesn't mean we are all alike, in fact fellowship is best when there are different view points, experiences, backgrounds, and ideas that come together.
As Jesus shares his life with us, we enjoy sharing our lives with others. Through events for all ages, we laugh, talk, eat, and share together with our friends, neighbors, and family. The Fellowship Team hosts many events that bring us together, including:
- All-Church camp at Camp Wooten every Labor Day Weekend (September)
- Day trips - we've gone to Maryhill Mueseum, various arts events etc.
- Sports teams - we have volleyball in January, and softball teams in the spring/summer
- Travel group - some people have taken trips to the Branson, MO, the middle east, Greece, etc.
- Best Years - a monthly potluck and guest speaker specifically for people who are retired
- Picnics in the Parks - approximately six weekly potlucks held in local parks in summer
