Dinner for 8

Dinner for Eight is a fun fellowship gathering for eight people - couples and singles are welcome. Meeting in small groups in each other's homes enables us to get to know one another a bit better than just in passing to say hello - each group functions according to their own timetables and schedules - hopefully they will be able to schedule at least three or four gatherings during the year. Everyone chips in for dinner -usually the host provides the main course with others bringing hors d'oeuvres, salad, and dessert. For additional information or to sign up, please contact Judy Walz ( or the church office (908.665.0050).
