Second Sunday's Potlucks at Faith
We are renewing an old Faith tradition—a once monthly potluck! On the 2nd Sunday of each month, let’s all bring a dish to share. We’re great cooks! Bring your mouthwatering specialty to the parish hall and we’ll break bread together. It’s a time to share in good conversations and renew our friendships. And since our friends at Unity Church currently don't use the church and parish hall on the 2nd Sundays, we can linger over good food and conversation. It also means that no one person has the responsibility of bringing treats that week. Here is a list of dates and themes to hang on your refrigerator:
- December 11th Advent
- January 8th Renewal
- February 12th Fellowship
- March 12th Lent
- April 9th Easter
- May 14th Pentecost
- June 11th Creation
- Summer break!!!
