Fellowship & Outreach
From Psalm 133:1, Hebrews 13:2, and Mark 16:15
Behold, how good and pleasant it is when we dwell in unity…
build beloved community by sharing life together.
Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it…
welcome all people with inclusive love regardless of age, race, gender, sexual orientation, or religious experience.
Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation...
get outside the church walls and connect with those in our wider community.
The Fellowship and Outreach Team builds beloved community both inside and outside our church walls. They offer fellowship gatherings and outings through our Oasis group, such as a harvest supper or trip to the Holocaust Museum. They also reach out to the community, marching each year at Pride, hosting a booth at Circus McGurkus and the Tampa LGBT wedding expo, offering an annual neighborhood Pet Blessing, creating and participating in a Pride worship service, much more.
Just as important, they create an atmosphere of radical hospitality on Sunday mornings with our welcome team and offer a fellowship time of coffee, snacks and conversation after worship each Sunday.
