On the first Saturday of each month, the Friends Community Church of Omaha hosts an all-church potluck in the gymnasium. Before each potluck, Pastor Oswald encourages church members to invite their friends and family members as an outreach to the community. However, very few guests typically attend the event. Pastor Oswald is not sure why some individuals invite their friends and family, whereas others do not. He has asked for your help in solving this problem in ministry.
