DINNERS FOR EIGHT
For those of you new to the church, and for those who would like to participate in Dinners for Eight this year, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Breaking bread together is a great way to get to know church members and friends.
You can sign up to host the dinners and participate in the dinners as a guest, or just be a guest. I have a form I will forward to you to find out what are your preferences so we can meet them as best we can. If you would like to host but do not have enough room at home, you can host at church. I really am in need of hosts at this time and have not had enough to get everyone to a table every month.
The way it works is I give the host a list of people who are interested in participating and the host contacts everyone to see if they are available for the evening the host chooses for the dinner. We generally hold the dinners on a mid month weekend, either Friday, Saturday or Sunday nights. The host prepares the main dish and assigns the guests to bring either a side dish, an appetizer, a dessert, or for those who don't cook, a beverage and/or bread. I try to coordinate the host and dinner guests so that there is a mixing of guests at each hosts' table each month.
It really is a good time, and we would love to have you.
