What Is the Great Banquet?
The Great Banquet is an orderly, structured weekend
designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christians.
Through a combined effort of laity and clergy, the Great
Banquet focuses on the renewal of the church.
The image of the Great Banquet comes from Luke 14:15-24.
Jesus tells of a master who prepared a great banquet and
invited many guests, saying "Come, for everything is now
ready." Many had excuses and did not attend. Finally, many
were brought who were poor, crippled, blind and lame. The
result of the master's invitation was to feast and fellowship at a
banquet given by God.
