Fellowship Dinner Volunteers Needed

Pioneer’s fellowship dinner ministry is alive and well.  There are currently 11 teams sharing in the responsibility to host the dinners throughout the year.  But the ministry needs more teams as well as individuals who are willing to join the current teams.

If you are a part of a small group or Sabbath School class that is not currently active in this important ministry, please consider becoming involved.  The commitment is not great.  Current teams serve from two to four times a year.  And if you would like to join a currently active team, let us know and you will directed to a team.

For more information, or to volunteer, dial 269-281-2345, and enter Fellowship Dinner. You will be able to enter you contact information there, and we will be in contact with you.

You'll build meaningful connections by hosting the student for a home cooked meal, surprising them with their favorite treats, and reminding them that they've been prayed for. The time commitment is at your discretion.
