“Make new friends” dinner 

Saturday, February 8th 

5:30-7:30 in Friendship Hall

  Do you wish you knew more of the people who attend other worship services?  Want to get to know people of other generations?  Join us for our “Make new friends” Dinner on Saturday, February 8 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm in Friendship Hall.  You will be assigned to a table of eight for the appetizer course.  Then you will be assigned to a different table for the main course and a third table for the dessert course.  At each course, your table will have discussion starter questions and topics.  (No politics allowed.) 

         This is a night to have fun getting to know other people; not to bond with your spouse, your children, or your best friends (You see them all the time!)  Students are encouraged to participate.  Children have a choice of participating at a table or registering for free childcare.  Second Harvest’s Catering for Good is providing dinner.  Volunteers are needed for set-up, serving, clean-up and starting the questions.  If you would like to participate, make your reservation by January 27 by bringing $20 to the church office or clicking here to register on-line.
