Parish House Pot Luck Suppers
Everyone — young, old, and in between — is welcome at these monthly gatherings of members and friends of the congregation for food, fun, and fellowship. Usually held on the second Friday evening of the month, but sometimes on Saturday evenings, the evening begins with a reception in the Atrium at 5:45, followed by the Pot Luck Supper in the Parish House Parlors, and ending with an engaging program in the Auditorium at 7:45. Donation at the door is $2 per person or $5 per family to help cover expenses.
Each person, couple, or family is asked to bring a dish to share that serves 8-10 people — either a main dish, vegetable, salad, beverage, or dessert. Reservations are strongly requested to help us set up places for all. To reserve, you can fill out a tear-off form in Sunday’s order of service and put it in the collection plate or take it to the Suppers table in the Atrium after the service during Coffee Hour. You can also call the church office to reserve in advance at 401-421-7970. Childcare for infants and children to age 10 will be available for parents who request in advance.
