Breaking Bread

"They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship... They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God ... and the Lord added to their numbers daily those who were being saved." Acts 2:42, 46d-47. The early church of Acts had it right! Church is not simply a place you go on Sundays. It’s who you are. Part of being the church means building relationships with each other through fellowship, prayer, study, and hospitality. Therefore, you’re invited to be the church at our Breaking Bread Dinners. 

Here’s how it works:

For approximately an hour and a half, we’ll do two of our favorite things--eating and talking--to get better acquainted. We pray you’ll take this opportunity to connect with your church family and build new, lasting relationships. Each group governs itself on meeting dates, host homes and menu. It’s all about fellowship!

Get better acquainted with your fellow treasures in earthly vessels by contacting Dotty Collins at 830-629-5129,  , or call the church office.
