They spent their time in learning from the apostles, taking part in the fellowship, and sharing in the fellowship meals and the prayers.

All the believers continued together in close fellowship and shared their belongings with one another. 145
They would sell their property and possessions, and distribute the money among all, according to what each one needed.
Day after day they met as a group in the Temple, and they had their meals together in their homes, eating with glad and humble hearts,
praising God, and enjoying the good will of all the people. And every day the Lord added to their group those who were being saved.
