Dinner Groups FAQ
All your questions about Coffee Creek's Dinner Groups are answered here!
What are Dinner Groups?
Dinner Groups are a great way to meet people from Coffee Creek that you may not already know. Groups plan their own meals and get together once a month for three consecutive months.
Dinner Groups Signup Periods: September 15-30, February 15-28, May 15-31
Dinner Groups Meet: October-December, March-May, June-August
Dinner Groups share meals at participants’ homes or at local restaurants. The emphasis is on fun and fellowship, so no one has to be a gourmet cook to participate.
How do Dinner Groups work?
Simply fill out the online registration form - https://www.coffeecreek.church/dinner. Once groups are formed, the Dinner Group Coordinator (Sarah) will contact members to arrange the details for the first gathering.
What does a Group Coordinator do?
The Group Coordinator contacts group members to select the FIRST location, date, and food sign-ups for the first gathering. The TWO future gatherings are scheduled during your first night together WITHIN your group.
Who cooks the meals?
It's potluck! Potluck dinners are a good way to simplify meal planning and distribute costs equally among everyone in the group. Consider picking a dinner "theme night" (i.e. Italian night, backyard barbeque, soup night, etc.), and everyone can bring a dish that goes along with that theme. Some groups may also choose to visit local restaurants or other venues.
I don't have room to host a dinner, or I really can't cook!
Our desire is for you to spend time together getting to know each other and include everyone. Your group may choose to repeat a host home or eat out.
How are the Dinner Groups groups formed?
As Dinner Groups groups are formed, our goal will be to put people together so that each group has, at most, eight to ten adults, taking into account the preferences that you listed. Groups are cross-generational, may include couples and singles. Some groups are adults only and others welcome kids. Note your preference on the signup form.
What about families with children?
Your group will determine the answer here, bearing in mind that your preference for the kind of group you are interested in will have been taken into account initially.
What happens after our last gathering?
Hopefully, you will have had a rewarding experience and look forward to similar experiences at Coffee Creek Church. You may decide to sign up for another round of Dinner Groups with a different group of folks, or your group may wish to stay intact and continue as a community group.
Sounds like fun! Can I sign up anytime?
Group Formation & sign ups only occur during the three promotion periods: mid-September, mid-February, & mid-May.
