Dinner for Eight (D48) is a fun and exciting way to connect with people at Northshore. If you’d like to meet people in our church in a casual and relaxed atmosphere, this is for you!
Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace. (1 Peter 4)
Each dinner provides everyone (singles and couples) an opportunity to share a meal in a casual atmosphere. We plan to schedule dinners quarterly with different groups each quarter. Our goal is to develop new relationships, as well as strengthen existing relationships. Each group meets for a meal at a host home, a restaurant, or for a progressive dinner… it is up to you.
Simply sign-up on a connection card at Northshore. You can sign up as singles or couples. Everyone is welcome! After the coordinators assign groups, the host will contact the members to arrange the details of the gathering. If you want to be a host, please indicate so when signing up.
Q: How are the groups formed? Can we be in the same group as our friends?
A: There will be eight adults in each group, assigned by D48 coordinators (Dan Olson, Aaron Wong). We plan to kick off new relationships, so we cannot guarantee any specific group assignments.
Q: Being a Host sounds like a lot of work. What do I have to do? Who cooks the food?
A: Being a host is fun! Hosts are responsible for contacting the members of the group to coordinate the location and the food plan. You choose the food preparation, but we suggest you make it easy. You can invite folks to your home for a meal you prepare, do a potluck, do a theme night (i.e. Italian, Mexican, Soup Night, etc) or you can choose to go out to a restaurant if folks are comfortable with the cost.
Topics of conversation are up to the group. We can provide some icebreaker ideas if you would like.
