Monthly Singles Potluck Luncheon 12/15/2013 12:45 PM

 

 

 

 

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.

    I have been thinking about all of us who didn't know one another just one year ago, two years ago, three years ago, and the life-long friendships I will have with people whom I have met because of this meetup group or another meetup group. Thankful. Merry Christmas, Everyone!! Jesus Christ, our Messiah and Lord has come, and the world forever changed. My life forever changed. Potluck days are among my favorite Sundays.

    Hi everyone, it should be clear, dry and high 30's if not 40 degrees by mid-day. The potluck is on!

    December 14, 2013

  • Pam V.

    I I am still planning on coming. But we're getting a lot of snow right now. If the roads are bad tomorrow I'm not going to chance driving all the way over there. So if I'm not there it's because of the snow.

    December 14, 2013

  • Jim H.

    Yes, I bring a ham

    My usual potluck reminder - this is lunch, please bring something to share that is more substantial than a bag of chips. Vegetables and salad is always welcome. It is easy to pick something up at the grocery store deli, however homemade casseroles and crock-pot creations are great! To keep expenses down, consider going half with another friend in the group to bring lunchmeat/cheese/bread/condiments or salad and salad dressing. Thanks! I loved the idea Jan sent out on the message board about each person trying to bring an entree at least every other month. See you Sunday!

    Linda Fallowfield is suggesting that everyone bring a canned food item or box of pasta etc for donations to a food pantry . She will take care of dropping it off to a local pantry after the potluck. Great idea! Thanks Linda!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
