The Summer Fellowship Meals were a big hit! The participants really enjoyed connecting with other members of the congregation.

Fellowship Meal Groups
Meal groups are 5-6 people who meet together for a meal once a month for three months. A lead person is identified for the group who will contact everyone to set dates, times, and location. Each meal will have a different host.
What if I want to join but I only have a small house or apartment or I don’t cook.
No problem, there are many ways you can still participate. The lead person can discuss options with you and the group. See examples below.
