I organized a group like this years ago (before Meetup.com existed) that worked great (lots of good veggie food, fun & fellowship). Also, there are vegetarian & Christian meetup groups, but I decided to start organizing this one so there will be more offerings for our community!

The format that worked well before was a potluck at member homes &/or churches on a rotating monthly basis, so I envision doing the same again. Depending on interest, in addition to breaking bread together we might include a few minutes or even a half hour before meals to do any of the following: Bible study, Eucharist/Communion, anointings with oil, singing/playing praise music, prayer requests, guided/meditative prayer, planning a group service project, etc. Please let me know if these would be of interest to you & if you have any additional ideas for the group!

Anyone is welcome to join. You do not have to be a vegetarian, or necessarily even a Christian, just able to do without meat/fish/seafood for the meal & not be uncomfortable associating with Christians. To be more inclusive dietarily, this group is "lacto-ovo" (allowing milk & eggs plus other nonmeat foods like cheese) but we welcome vegan/raw folks & such potluck dishes as some of us (myself included) are very interested in learning more about the latter. If the group wants, I would be glad to post vegan &/or raw dietary themed meetups in addition to our mainstay lacto-ovo ones.

Please let me know if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions for this group & if you are interested to help me plan/arrange meetups.

Thanks & blessings,

Bill S.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
