Church Meals Free of Charge


Can a church provide meals (or other food such as pizza parties for youth) to its members using funds that come from the regular Sunday morning offering?


Presumably we're talking here about occasional church fellowships. Yes, it's okay, as long as it's not disguised compensation for a church employee (e.g. paying for employees' family meals and entertainment on the church tab). I suggest that the budget plan for such expenditures though. Furthermore, it may be a sensitive matter to some who believe it is inappropriate to spend God's money to "feed the flock."
