Dinner Church offers a new way to share a
meal and a worship experience as we gather around a dinner table in the parish
hall, give thanks for our time together, nourish our bodies and souls, and
share in food, prayer, scripture, and conversation.
Come as you are. No need to bring
anything, but if you wish to contribute you may bring something for the meal –
cookies, flowers, bread – or you may donate for the next meal.
All Are Welcome!
