In January, the World Mission Society Church of God in Philadelphia held a hot cocoa social. Neighbors, co-workers and members of the community were all invited to join the heartwarming event. The event included rounds of ping-pong, customizing hot chocolate mugs, and snacking on s’mores and fruit kabobs.
The social began with guests creatively designing their own mugs. Soon after, they filled their mugs with hot chocolate, whipped cream and other toppings. There was a variety of hot cocoa flavors—French vanilla, caramel, blueberry and many more—which made it all the more difficult to have just one cup.
The relaxing sounds of background music played beneath laughter and chatter that filled the room. To the guests’ delight, there was also a do-it-yourself s’mores station, which gave them the pleasure of roasting jumbo marshmallows over an open fire. The s’mores station was a hit; everyone rushed back to make their own delicious and messy treats. Guests also enjoyed fruit kabobs smothered in chocolate.
Later that day, the hot cocoa social quickly turned into a ping-pong tournament. Guests were excited to play, whether they won or lost. All in all, it was an excitement-filled day at the Church of God.
I would’ve loved to be a part of roasting marshmallows indoors! I really hope I can visit this location soon! Excited for the food truck event 🙂
This event looks like so much fun!! I hope I can join next time )
Best day of my life.
I really enjoyed this event. Given the time of the year, it was a nice touch of warmth. Perfect for a hot cocoa gathering. As a member, I fully take advantage of these events and come to them whenever I can. I enjoy the church and it’s members are very kind and friendly.
It was my first indoor hot cocoa and s’more event. I loved it so much. Everyone was very friendly, welcoming and fun. From day one this church really broke my concept about what a church should be like. For sometime I was looking for a church, that studies the bible, have welcoming environment and nice members. I can truly say this is that church, I feel very comfortable and loved.
Through these types of events, many people get a chance, regardless being a member to this church or not, to experience similar emotions and meet amazing people in a causal setting. I can’t wait for the events to come.
