Hosting Coffee Hour in Fellowship Hall

After each Sunday service, friends and members at the church meet in Fellowship Hall to catch up with each other, check out various Social Justice activities being hosted by the church, and to enjoy some delicious, fair-trade coffee or tea with friends.

Each Sunday a few members volunteer to make the coffee and set up the tea trays. If you would like to help, please click the link below to sign up for a Sunday coffe hour service. We can always use the extra help, and absolutely no experience is required. If you’ve never hosted before or need instruction just put that in the “comment” section, and we will arrange for someone to meet you there and walk you through the process. Hosting coffee hour is a great way to give to the church without a large time commitment.

Common Questions

Q: Do I need to bring anything?

A: Nope! We used to ask 9 AM hosts to bring a gallon of milk, but the church will try to provide that from here on out. We want hosting coffee hour to be completely free for our volunteers.

Q: What time should I show up?

A: For hosting the 9 AM service coffee hour we recommend that you arrive by 8:15 AM.  Our large coffee maker needs to heat for about 20 minutes before being able to brew coffee, so you’ll need to get here a bit early to plug in the coffee machine. For hosting at the 11 AM service we recommend that you arrive by 10:45 AM.

Q: What if I can't make it?

A: You can cancel your signup online (or by calling Michele Wade, if the online signup is confusing for you). However, if you’re cancelling with less than 2-weeks’ notice, please send an email too hospitality@fpc-stow-acton.org. If there’s an emergency that means you’re cancelling with less than a day or two of notice, please text or call Michele Wade at 617-816-0708, so we can make sure to get a quick replacement. Thank you!. 

Q: Who should I contact if I have a problem or a question?

A: Send an email request to: hospitality@fpc-stow-acton.org or call Michele Wade at 617-816-0708.

Thank you from the Hospitality Committee,
