fore ye assemble yourselves togeth-
er, it is not possible to eat the Lord's
supper:21 for in your eating each one
taketh before other his own sup- per;
and one is hungry, and another is
drunken. 22 What, have ye not
houses to eat and to drink in? or
despise ye the church of God, and
put them to shame that have not?
What shall I say to you? shall I praise
you? In this I praise you not. 34 If
any man is hungry, let him eat at
home; that your coming together be
not unto judgment. And the rest will I
set in order whensoever I come.

V. WHAT CHURCH SOCIAL MEALS AUTHORIZE
Mayfair Church of Christ

The Mayfair story began in 1947 when the Central
Church of Christ chose to expand their mission
efforts into a new part of South Huntsville.

                 The Family Life Center was added
                 in 1978. This center houses a
                 large fellowship hall, adult
                 classrooms and the church office.

Woodson Chapel Church of Christ


In 1880 a group of Christians in the Oglesby
community began meeting from house to
house for worship.

                An upper story addition of
                Sunday School rooms and rest
                rooms and remodeling of
                kitchen and fellowship room
                were completed in the early
                seventies by Ahval Turner.
College Street Church of Christ

Early Beginnings
In the Spring of 1905, a small group of
Christians who lived in Waxahachie banded
together to establish a congregation of the
Lord's church in the city...
                          Several other expansion
                          projects were undertaken
                          as well during the 1970's
                          and 1980's. These
                          included: … An annex,
                          which contained new
                          offices and a fellowship
                          hall. (http://www.collegestreet.org/
