The Great Banquet is an orderly, structured weekend designed to strengthen and renew the faith of Christians and seekers. 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.
