Fellowship Hour Host Responsibilities
FELLOWSHIP HOST RESPONSIBILITIES
1) MAKE COFFEE ACCORDING TO THE DIRECTIONS ON THE WALL:
It is the responsibility of the host to make coffee. It takes about 30 minutes to make the six urns of coffee so you should arrive no later than nine am to complete the job before Liturgy starts.
The first pot should be run with water only with the filter cup in place (otherwise the water will spray everywhere). This stabilizes the system from the evaporation that took place during the week. Just keep adding water until in runs through into the urn that you have placed underneath beforehand. If you make coffee with the first pot it will be cold and taste really bad.
There are many who can help (and usually do help) make coffee. When Ally is there, she can assist (and instruct) until Liturgy begins, but she is not “the coffeemaker.”
During the warmer months coffee service should be set up OUTSIDE to minimize congestion in the hall. Use the card table.
2) SET OUT ALL SUPPLIES:
These include: large plates, dessert plates, utensils, napkins, “coffee mate” pods, Splenda, sugar, coffee cups, cold cups, coffee stirrers, tea, and a receptacle for trash lined with a paper towel. The wire fruit basket is fine for this.
If you notice that a supply is missing or in short supply, please contact Fr Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3) PROVIDE AND SET OUT FOOD FOR ABOUT 50 PEOPLE
Please do not stress over a glamorous labor intensive meal. Anything served with love is perfect.

CLEAN UP RESPONSIBILITIES
Cleaning up the hall is the responsibility of the fellowship hour host.
1) WASH, DRY AND PUT AWAY ALL DISHES/UTENSILS USED.
There are dish towels available. If you use them, please wash them at home and return them to the church hopefully by the following Sunday for use by the next team.
2) EMPTY ALL COFFEE URNS AND RINSE
3) PUT AWAY ALL EXTRA SUPPLIES
4) EMPTY THE TRASH
5) WIPE DOWN THE TABLES
You are not responsible for locking up. If people are still enjoying fellowship, please ask someone to take responsibility for locking the side gate.
If you are not able to stay to clean, you need to get someone to take over this responsibility for you.You should also communicate with your partner. Just bringing food is not hosting Fellowship hour. The hall does not clean itself. Please plan on ‘hosting’ the whole way through!
