Monthly Singles Potluck Luncheon 10/20/2013 12:45 PM

The Ravens-Steelers game isn't until 4:25 PM....join us, then go cheer on the Purple Birds...

 

 

 

It's a

Potluck Luncheon!!

 

 

 

Bring food to share and join the group that is

"Singles With Grace"

at Grace Community Church

for their monthly potluck luncheon.

 

We eat, we socialize, we hang out and a few games might be played.

There is a lot of opportunity to mix, mingle, meet other singles and make friends at these monthly potlucks.  Jan usually has a icebreaker game to get us talking to one another.

We start gathering for the luncheon (setting up tables, chairs and such) around  12:45 PM with the goal of beginning to eat around 1:00 PM.

 

Directions and MAP (click link)

If you enter the church from the first parking lot that you come to, the Grace Place area is on the opposite side of the church.  Walk through the lobby to the opposite end and you will see Grace Place.  (You can also ask at one of the information desks.)  If you park around back of the church and enter through those doors, the Grace Place area will be on your left as you enter the building.

 

Bring a potluck dish to share.

A potluck dish is a substantial main dish, salad or side/dessert item.

Across the street from the church, there is a Harris Teeter grocery store and about 1/2 mile away at one of the traffic circles is a Food Lion grocery store.  This may be an option if you are coming from your church's worship service and need to pick up an item to contribute to the potluck.

You can also pick up take out food - a bucket of chicken or side items, a few sub sandwiches of $5 footlongs from Subway, a carry out order of chinese food - you don't have to cook....although delicious homemade casseroles and salads are much appreciated!!

Grace does not have refrigerators or microwaves (yet) that we can use to keep items cold or to heat them.  Kitchen is coming soon, hopefully later in 2013!

 

 

Usually there are 60 to 75 single men and women who regularly attend these monthly luncheons, both from Grace Community Church and from our Meetup group.

Note - This is the church that Michelle, Mike and Jan regularly attend.  Posting this event is in no way an attempt to take you away from your home church.  Please attend your church's worship service on Sunday morning and then join us for the luncheon.

If you do not have a regular church and/or want to use this as an opportunity to visit Grace, please contact one of us and we will coordinate with you to meet you in the lobby at 11:00 AM.

The Singles With Grace group normally sits together during the 11:15 service.  We sit about halfway down the far right section when facing the stage.  If you arrive after 11:15 and want to sit with us, look for the group in that area.

    Good to see everyone, although my prayers are with the family of Steve, the worship leader at Grace Community Church who died recently.

  • Lorrie (not Lori or L.

    Looks like I may not be staying. Too much emotion to deal with after the sudden death of our worship pastor.

    • Pam V.

      Will be praying for you. Praying for his family. Is this at Grace?

      October 20, 2013

    • David W.

      Hi Pam, yes, the man who died is named Steve. Thanks for your prayers.

    Sorry for all the confusion. I was visiting family in Pennsylvania and as of last night I didn't think I was going to be home today. But it changed now I can come.

    My usual reminder - this is lunch, please bring a main dish or side item to share. Pick up something at a restaurant or grocery store - that is always an option. Collaborate with a friend to bring sandwich fixings or the stuff to put together a garden salad. Just suggestions. See you Sunday! Also, I put out a container to ask for $1.00 toward ice, beverages and paper products. I appreciate and use whatever I collect toward those items. Thank you.

    I WOULD LOVE YOUR HELP FOR OUR MIX-IT-UP GAME THIS MONTH!!! I am planning to set up some stations for “Minute to Win It” activities. What kind of weird stunts would be fun to compete in against your friends? I have a couple of ideas, but am open to input. An example would be “marshmallow stacking”, but I bet you may be able to come up with some crazier stuff. Send a message to me from my profile - love to hear from you!
