Having a meal is an excellent opportunity to build unity within your church fellowship. With a little planning in advance of your church picnic it will be smooth flowing and the day fondly remembered. Download our potluck sign up sheet to help in your planning.

Additionally napkins, cutlery and plates will are necessary. Participants may bring their own or disposable ones may be purchased and risned following the meal for recycling. If possible have the BBQ owners manual available to trouble shoot if the BBQ doesn't function as expected.

Childrens Games

Having entertainment for the children allows the adults to fellowship. When there is unity among the congregation there is a strong sense of the Lord's presence during worship.

Here are some game ideas to organize for the children. Download and use our scoring sheet to track which team wins each game. Prizes (such as various types of balls) may be obtained to award each child who participates.
