    Fellowship, teaching, learning scripture with other believers. (I tend to prefer learning as a group, yeah. So the Bible study classes are my favorite part.)

    It depends. If you are speaking of the Church, then it is people. When Christians come together for church, I see this as a time for equipping the saints to function as the Church. There is a time for evangelism, but too often I think that churches neglect their call to disciple and equip the body for kingdom work. I am sure that it could be reversed in some churches (equipping but never working).
