NEW THIS FALL… Fellowship Dinners
Are you connected to other people in the Harrison Church family? Are you looking for new connections?
We are launching a new fellowship opportunity in September. For 3 Saturdays this fall, we invite you to gather over dinner in a family’s home for fellowship, to get to know other people in our congregation. The fellowship time will be 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The dates are:
Saturday, September 9th
Saturday, October 14th
Saturday, November 11th
You can register for all the above dates or individual dates, based on your availability. You will be assigned to a different group for each of the fellowship dinners.
We are also looking for people who are willing to open their homes to host the dinners. Each dinner will include 6 to 8 people. The host will provide the venue and coordinate the meal with the people assigned to their group, inviting the participants to bring something for the meal (side dish, salad, dessert, etc.), unless the host decides to provide the meal. You can select to host as many times as you want.
Childcare will be the responsibility of the participants.
