First Church Fellowship
Thank you for signing on and volunteering to host Fellowship at First Church in Salem, Unitarian Universalist. Please read the following information about hosting fellowship.
Members and friends of The First Church volunteer to host Fellowship each week. One or two people volunteer to host the adult table in the Cleveland Room or the Children's Table in the Barnard Room. Some people find that co-hosting can be more fun and make the hosting easier.
Fellowship Committee members are available to assist any "first-timers", or to help pair someone up with another co-host.
Food Preparation / Before the service:
Put out in appropriate plates anything that will be fine on the table for an hour to an hour and a half; i.e. cookies, cheese and crackers, etc. Anything that needs to be taken from the refrigerator or heated in the oven, please get it all set up and leave the Sexton a note or ask him if he would do that at the last minute. Generally we need one or two sweet goodies and one or two non-sweet goodies at each table. Then you are encouraged to head to the meeting house and enjoy the church service.
Some hosts prefer to leave the service during the last hymn for last-minute preparations.
Cleanup / After the service:
Please bring back into the kitchen the food, and coffee and tea trays around 12:30. Before then, feel free to help clear cups, saucers, plates, etc. that are obviously finished. (This is a great way to chat with people you don’t know.) You are responsible for putting away leftovers and the Sexton loads the dishwasher.
Please avoid serving anything with nuts since we have some kids with allergies. If you are going to serve a tasty treat with nuts, please put a little label or sign next to it.
Thank you for your help!
If you have any questions, please send an email to [email protected].
