Dinners For Eight

6:00 pm, Monday, August 14, 2023

The May “Dinners For 8” is on the calendar!

We would love to have 7 – 8 host couples or individuals, each of whom will host a dinner at their home. Guests will sign up to attend, then will be assigned arbitrarily to a “Host Table”, in order to promote fellowship among a broader cross section of the church rather than small groups of friends getting together. Sign-up sheets will be posted in the Commons, and available on-line.

Hosts Responsibilities: [1] Contact and invite your assigned list of guests; [2] provide the Main Entrée and suggest side dishes for guests to bring; [3] provide tea or water; invite guests to bring their own choice of adult beverages (if you are comfortable doing so).

Suggestions for hosts: Plan a simple menu (some examples are provided below). If you’re on the reserved side, consider inviting a friend or couple you know well to help keep conversation moving; plan a friendly, simple ice-breaker at the beginning of the evening; be forthright and clear with your home values;: for example: if you prefer NOT serving alcohol in your home, be clear when you contact your guests; at the same time be mindful some guests do not consume alcohol, respect their refusal.

Decorate your table/home as you usually would. To simplify you could ask guests to bring bottled water or sweet tea/unsweet tea, paper plates & utensils, whatever you’re comfortable with. The idea is for everyone to contribute as they can and enjoy camaraderie. Keep it Simple!
