FIRST CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH UCC DC
Our Extravagant Welcome for ALL who enter our Doors! We strive to grow our care for each other and ourselves through the kind of relationships that we understand Jesus meant for us to have in a covenantal community. The usual tradition at First Church DC is for people to volunteer for coffee hour twice per year.

COFFEE HOUR INSTRUCTIONS
IN ADVANCE OF YOUR WEEK: About a week prior to your assigned coffee hour, contact the other members of the coffee hour team to determine who is bringing what food. General food groups provided at coffee hour are fruits, veggies, carbs, protein, and sweets. Regular coffee, decaf coffee, and tea setup should be ready by 10:00 am on the white desk in the Narthex area so plan on arriving at church between 9:30-9:45.
GENERAL INFORMATION: Coffee hour is usually in the Narthex, except for potlucks and other special occasions when the Church moves it to Community Hall.. The kitchenette on the ground floor is available for prep work if you wish but the kitchen on the second floor has more space and most of the items you’ll need for preparation are located there. Also, place the garage ticket validation machine, (usually in the church office), on the white desk in the Narthex so members can validate before and after coffee hour. On Potluck Sunday, coffee, drinks and garage validation will be outside of the Community Hall with the Potluck set-up or other special events in the Community Hall.
Use the white desk in the Narthex for all of the beverages. Place the hot water thermos and tea box closest to the wall, then the decaf, then the regular coffee, and cold beverages on the end; this keeps the most popular beverages within the easiest access.
DETAILED INFORMATION: Step-by-step instructions on using the coffee maker are printed above it and regular and decaf coffee packets are in the cabinet to the left. On Potluck Sundays you will probably want to use the oven. Instructions are written on the oven; please note that the button to turn the fan on (the first step to using the oven or burners) is above you on the fan itself.
