Dinner for 8 -- Improved
We're making a change to this program!  We had an experimental group of 4 families with children who met last session and we're going to continue to offer this choice.   You'll be able to choose either meeting with Adults Only, Whole Families, or Either of the Above.  Groups of ~8 adults OR ~3 Whole Families meet for dinner once-a-month for 4 months.  Hosting of the dinner rotates among the group, and everyone brings food.  Our purpose is to build deeper relationships.  It’s also an opportunity to invite 1-2 friends you may have been wanting to invite to Crestview, and here's a chance to introduce them to others from your church in a fun setting.  Sign-ups begin April 3 and end April 24.  Groups meet May - August 2016.  Find the sign-up sheet at the hutch in the Fellowship Hall or you can contact Muffie VanAndel (303) 444-7036 or
