They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. Day by day, as they spent much time together in the temple, they broke bread at home and ate their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having the goodwill of all the people. And day by day the Lord added to their number those who were being saved. -- Acts 2:42, 46-47
Dinner Church is a small group gathering for a meal, learning together, and worship. It is a way of coming together that resembles how the earliest Christians met and built their communities, long before there were public church buildings. They met in each other's homes! This fall gatherings are scheduled at 5:30 pm on various days, to suit anyone's schedule:
Thursday, September 8
Monday, September 19
Sunday, October 2
Thursday, October 13
Can you host one of these nights? Would you like to try it out as a participant?

Meals are potluck, host sets the table and ensures there is bread and wine for the eucharist. Pastor Kristian will be present to help lead the prayers, but hopefully others can also step in to lead too. Dinner Church is for anyone to lead!
