A FELLOWSHIP of believers experiences God’s power even more strongly. In a community, God’s grace can become concretely visible. If we accept other people just as they are – we will experience God’s love. If we support people in need and help others selflessly – God’s own dedication to us will be revealed. If we share joys and sorrows, if we encourage and instruct each other, if we engage in discussion and treat each other with respect – God’s good plans will unfold.
The Lord’s Supper – A sign of righteous community
God has called us into his community, and to commemorate this, we regularly celebrate the Lord’s Supper. At the Lord’s Supper, we eat bread and drink grape juice as signs of our close connections with God and with each other. Together, we seek to approach God and to become the church of Jesus Christ. Through the Lord’s Supper, we celebrate God’s grace, which positively transforms us as individuals and as a community.
Coffee Hour and Fellowship Sunday
In order to create community, people need to meet and talk. Therefore, after every worship service, we have a coffee hour for discussion and socializing. In addition, we often have a common midday meal and work together in the garden of our Menno-House. Every month at the last Sunday we have "Fellowship Sunday". This is a time for eating together and discussing e.g. the sermon we have just heard.
