We value and take great pride in our coffee hour at Cleveland Park Church. It is a special time and place full of fellowship and warmth where we can equally greet old friends and make new connections. “The Greatest Coffee Hour in Christendom” – to borrow from one of our past Moderators – is a reflection of all of us and the welcome we joyously extend to all.
Just as we all contribute to creating the special connections and welcoming environment of our coffee hour, we all need to share in supplying the coffee, tea, and light snacks that encourage lingering, conversation, and extending genuine fellowship. Starting Sunday, June 3, coffee hour hosts will be assigned by the Fellowship Subcommittee in consultation with Pastor Ellen in order to rotate responsibility throughout our membership.
Attached to this email is the first 5 months of assigned hosts. Please review this list carefully. If you know you have a conflict with the Sunday you are assigned to host coffee hour, arrange to swap Sundays with another member and communicate the swap with Kimberly (email@example.com) so we can keep the list accurate. If an emergency occurs on the Sunday you are hosting, please notify me (firstname.lastname@example.org OR 919-672-3010).
Also attached is a general information/instruction sheet for Coffee Hour Hosts. It outlines where items are located in the church kitchen, what you should do when on Sunday morning, and general guidelines on what to provide. Remember: Coffee Hour isn’t lunch; it’s a light snack at most and the real focus is on our time of fellowship together.
I’m excited about this new direction where we all get to have greater ownership of our prized coffee hour!
