Rev. Mark Cryderman spoke at our Pastor's Resourcing Day about Dinner Church. A innovative way to worship, church plant and reach people that has roots in how the early church used to meet.
What is Dinner Church (excerpts taken from Dearborn FMC website):
The intent of dinner to church is aimed at people who would not go to church on a Sunday morning under any circumstance. Whether it be their upbringing or their culture, the dinner church is aimed at people who don’t even have the transportation to come to church. Dinner church isn’t just about serving people a meal, but serving them the bread of life as well.
Dinner church includes arts and recreation for children. The kids’ arts and rec program goes from 3 to 5, and then at 5:15, we start serving dinner for them and their families.
The approach is similar to
how the early church met during the first 200 years of Christianity.
