Methodist Activity Center of FUMC Decatur

One of the earliest traditions of the people who follow Jesus is to gather together around the table, sharing a meal and sharing our lives. At Dinner Church, informal worship takes place around the table with a delicious meal brought together by the entire community. Communion is made as we share food & share our lives in exploring scripture, singing, and praying together. Bring your faith. Bring your doubts. Bring your appetite for something bigger than yourself.
This family-friendly worship environment is created to be hospitable to people of all ages and stages of life. Just like your family table at Thanksgiving, this is a place for the youngest & the oldest, for those with beliefs and those with doubts, for solo parents and single people, for business professionals and professional parents, for those who have grown up in church and those a bit wary of “church people.” Everyone is always welcome here at God’s table. Come as you are — we mean it!
Nursery & childcare provided. Families begin the night by singing & eating together at 6:00, then at 6:30 the kids will break off for activities led by our certified Nursery Staff while adults engage in guided dinner conversations. For questions about childcare, please contact Pastor Ricky Harrison.
