How Do You Measure Fellowship?
Maybe it’s my engineering background, but I like to have a good grasp on how the church is doing. I want to know trends in everything from small group involvement to giving to attendance. After moving into our new facility we have a new way to measure how much fellowship occurs on Sunday morning … and it’s our Coffee Consumption. When we were at the school, everybody got there late and and left early, and we typically only fixed 3 large airpots of coffee. Now people are getting to church early and staying late, and our coffee consumption has increased to 8 large airpots. That’s a 266% increase in our fellowship!
