Reflecting on Church #9: The Food Factor

Reflecting on Church #9: The Food Factor

With our journey of visiting fifty-two churches over, I can reflect more on the complete experience. Today, I’ll add to my thoughts about Church #9.

52 Churches, A Yearlong Journey Encountering God, His Church, by Peter DeHaan, PhD

In a word, the potluck at this church was epic. Between delicious food and making connections, it remains a significant memory of our journey. Although an older congregation (which does not excite me), many of them act young (which does excite me). It’s a busy church, with lots of community outreach. On the fourth Friday of each month, they hold a community dinner, which is legendary among area Christians.

I wanted to make a return visit to meet their pastor and hear her speak, but a few months after our visit, she retired. However, I do want to check out one of their community dinners. I suspect it will be like their potluck, only more.

When we visited they had two Sunday morning services; now they have just one. I wonder if they’ve lost members. I hope the situation is temporary.
