Some churches charge a fee for a potluck and others do not. Why do some charge and others do not? Greed? Support for missions & teen ministries? To support their CCM worship centers? Or what? In my experience its been SBC churches, Calvary Chapel's, Foursquare, and the like that have charged for food on a church potluck, while the IFB churches, and Bible churches have free food. What is your take on potlucks? FREE food or charge for food? Having FREE Potlucks means open fellowship with everyone, but charging a fee may not mean that.
