No Cafeteria Meal

Our church is a family meal, not a cafeteria. In the cafeteria you can go through the food on offer and be picky. In fact you can just eat cereal for weeks on end if nothing else appeals to you. But just try that at home when mom has cooked good food! Nope--you gotta eat at least three bites of the food Mom made.

We know that not everyone likes camping, praying, service projects, discipleship groups, etc. in the same way or in the same degree. But part of what makes us a family is that we participate together. There is no sense here at SGF that people are picky about what they'll put on their plate ("Eww--praying? I don't like praying!") . . . we as a fellowship are committed to participating with each other, and we come to the table ready to eat.
