Christ Venice

For the last 3 years we have enjoyed a fun and successful event designed for parents and caregivers of children and youth in our church family. This event was a "progressive" style dinner where we had parent hosts both at church and in their own homes for each course of a meal. We basically played musical chairs while we broke bread together. It has always been so much fun and a great way to start conversation with new friends in our midst.  

To keep things fresh, THIS YEAR we are taking a step "BACK"... and changing things up!

Introducing the REGRESSIVE DINNER. Ta-dahhh!  

What you ask is a regressive dinner? THAT, my friends is a wonderful question. In light of the fact that the term was "invented" for this event, it can be "whatever" we define it to be!

SOOOOO... This is what you can expect:

Sign up below to host a table of 5-6, including you (and yours.)
You will be assigned to bring either appetizer/starter, salad/soup or dessert for the guests at your table. You will also be responsible for your "tablescape" Your round table will be dressed with a plain white table cloth and the proper number of chairs for your guests. Be creative with your decorations/theme. You are welcome/encouraged to provide conversation starters.  

Never fear if you are not the creative sort! You CAN and SHOULD still participate! Amy is available to assist with ideas, supplies etc. if needed, just ask!

What about the main course you ask? Well that is our gift to you! We will come together at one long family table hosted by Christ Venice Family Ministry for a delicious main course.
