Hospitality Ministries

“Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unaware.” – Hebrews 13:2

Outreach / Social Events

  • Fellowship Café – Everyone is invited to enjoy a cup of coffee and something sweet at the Fellowship Café located in the Fellowship Hall following each worship service.

  • Ice Cream Social – An annual event, open to the public, offering free ice cream, hot dogs, beverages, and a time of fellowship with us here at the Fairfield Glade United Methodist Church.
  • Fifth Sunday Dinners – Potluck dinners where everyone is afforded the opportunity to participate by bringing their favorite dish and enjoy fellowship with other church family members who perhaps may attend a different worship service.
  • Golf Outing – Teams are created to ensure cross-worship service and comparable handicap distribution. A light dinner and awards ceremony follows this fun round of golf.
  • Game Night – This occurs on the second Monday night of each month and includes a brief social time (5:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.) games from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Everyone brings a small, ‘favorite snack’ to share.
  • Christmas Dinner –Our goal is to ensure that none of our church family will have to dine alone on Christmas Day. Therefore, if they are not entertaining family or friends, nor visiting with family or friends, they can pre-register and join us on Christmas Day for a turkey dinner with all the trimmings prepared for them, and fellowship with members of their church family.
  • Dinner for Six, Seven or Eight – Sharing a meal with other Christians is a Methodist heritage. It provides a comfortable, non-threatening environment to encourage and help develop new friendships. Open to singles and couples, these dinners are offered once every quarter, providing members the opportunity to share their Glade experiences and other life stories in a small group atmosphere. The host prepares an entrée, and the other participants contribute salads, vegetables or desserts.
