Wednesday night suppers have been a church staple for decades in the American church. They provide a weekly opportunity for food, fellowship, music, and discipleship.
Modern culture challenges the time-honored institution, however. Midweek services compete with busy schedules, sports’ schedules, school activities, class homework, and gridlocked traffic. In the face of societal pressures, many churches have cancelled Wednesday night suppers.
However, two years ago Northside Church made a renewed commitment to our midweek activities. In addition to a delicious meal, the church provides rich opportunities for children, youth, and adults. We have celebrated growth in both numbers and Spirit.
In the Gospels, Jesus did some of his best work around the dinner table with friends and followers. Some of Christ’s most memorable words and deeds occurred with food and drink.
I invite you to join the counter-cultural revolution at Northside Church. Join us for Wednesday night supper and enjoy food not only for the body but also for the soul.
It’s a good thing.
