Workshop Meetings:
During 2015 and 2016, the Fellowship Team met with the 3 other Program Teams (Discipleship, Ministries, and Worship) every other month, alternating with Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings. These were now called Workshop Meetings. They began with an opening devotion, then individual Team meetings, and then re-convene for joint discussions. Discussions usually included our 5 Outreach Events: Chili Cook-off (February), Rummage Sale (March), Easter Egg Hunt (April), Lady Bug Festival (May), and the Harvest Festival (October).
Each Program Team then choses a member to be a part of the Outreach Event planning team as follows:
  • Worship - radical hospitality, directions to event, publicity
  • Fellowship – food (buying, serving, and cleanup)
  • Ministries - telling our MUMC story (welcome table)
  • Discipleship - faith sharing component
