Annual Church Picnics
We welcome you to our Annual Church Picnics and fellowship dinners!
Our main Annual Church Picnic at Taughannock State Park takes place the last Sunday in June. Great food and fellowship are enjoyed. The park has a pavilion where we meet, with several picnic tables surrounding the pavilion. There is swimming area, children's playground, and open areas where we can set up a volleyball net. The children's ministry provides some special games also for the children.
Our Chicken Barbecue Picnic takes place on the church property at the end of July. Throughout the year we also have a few dish-to-pass fellowship dinners. These events are aimed to provide time for fun and for people to get to know one another in the church, especially newcomers
Sunday Fellowship Lunches
Six times each year, we plan Sunday Fellowship Lunches following our 10am service. These lunches vary from Soup and Sandwiches, to Crockpot / Chili Specials, or Italian Dishes. Some vegetarian / gluten free dishes are also provided, and plenty of dessert is included. These times of fellowship are to welcome new people to get to know others at Agape, as well as to allow people who are regular attenders to mingle with those in the congregation they may not really know. We have found the Lord uses these times to help people open up one to another on various levels, and to increase a healthy, open atmosphere in the church.
Special Services or Groups
Water Baptism Services at a neighboring church in Trumansburg, Baptism in the Holy Spirit Seminars at Agape, and New Believers Laying the Foundation Groups, also at Agape.
NYC Style Stickball
A fun event took place in the fall of 2016, which we plan to do again. Pastor Mike gathered a bunch of men, women and children together and demonstrated a NYC street game called 'stickball'. Due to rain, the event took place in the garage of a local building, but they played and enjoyed the game with Pastor Mike regardless, since he had been looking forward to teaching them 'NYC style stickball'.
