What is the “Love Feast?”
 
Because we have many individuals and families who have recently started attending Five Forks Church, there may be some, many perhaps, who do not know what we are talking about as we promote our upcoming Love Feast.
 
This in an annual event, held on the Wednesday evening between Palm Sunday and Easter.  Everyone in our church family is invited to gather in the gym where we begin by sharing a simple meal together.  This meal, consisting of soup and sandwiches, is prepared and served by our Deacons.  It provides us with an opportunity to enter into uplifting conversation at the table with friends, family, as well as those sitting near us that we do not yet know.  
 
At the conclusion of the meal we remember and reflect on the sacrifice of Jesus as we enter into a time of communion.  We are served and then eat bread which symbolizes the body of Jesus.  Then we are each served a cup from which we drink, the juice symbolizing the blood of Jesus.
 
Finally, everyone is invited to make their way to a specific area of the church – men to the Chapel, ladies to the Children’s Wing –  as we conclude the evening with a time of foot washing.  We follow the example set by Jesus as we wash the feet of the person sitting on one side of us, and by having our feet washed by the person sitting on the other side of us. 
 
The Love Feast is a time when our congregation comes together in a meaningful way…eating together, participating in communion together, washing each other’s feet.  It brings us together, and bonds us together as followers of Jesus.  And so please make plans to join us in the gymnasium on Wednesday evening, March 27th at 6pm for our annual Love Feast service!
