Dinners in the Home
September 22nd, 2018
Dinners in the Home
New groups forming in September
for 3 or 4 month cycle
Come join this casual opportunity to get to know fellow members and friends of the church on a more personal level. There is no set agenda for these get togethers. Just share the pleasures of food & drink, hospitality and conversation in the homes of participants.
Once a month, for 3 or four months, a group of ~ eight people meet for dinner in the home of a member of the group. The “host” pair, provides appetizers, pre-dinner drinks (alcoholic and/or not) and coffee/tea. A second pair provides a main dish; a third pair provides side dishes (2 of the following: salad, soup, bread, vegetable dish) and the 4th pair brings a dessert. The group may decide to have a “theme”, such as Mexican, or brunch instead of dinner, etc. Hosting and course assignments rotate each month.
The first dinner for this cycle will be the 3rd weekend of September (21st-23rd). Groups will also meet the 3rd weekend of October and November, with an option to meet in December.
