Dinner for Six

Dinner for Six is a great way to connect with others at The Bridge. The purpose of Dinner for Six is to meet new people in our church, form new friendships, and deepen relationships with one another.  Three couples are grouped together for a three month period (Feb-Apr).  Over the Winter, the group will gather at least once a month to share a meal together.

Q:  How does Dinner for Six work?

A:  Complete and submit the tear-off in your brochure or sign up online.  Groups will be formed by the church office. Once the groups are formed, everyone in the group will be contacted and given a list of the group members and contact information. The groups will be listed with couples listed as 1, 2, and 3. The first couple will contact the remaining group members to organize the date, time and location of the first meal and who will bring what dish to share. Couple two will be responsible for coordinating month two, and couple three will coordinate month three. During dinner, the group will agree on a schedule of when and where to meet the next month.

Q: Who cooks the meals?

A:  The meals are shared-dish dinners, or pot luck. The lead couple for that month’s meal will contact group members to determine who will bring what dish or item.  The group can be as creative or simple as they choose in the meals they enjoy. 

Q:  I don’t have room to host a dinner or I really can’t cook.

A:  No problem. Our desire is for you to spend time eating together, getting to know each other and to include everyone. You are not required to host a dinner at your home to participate. Some groups may be hosted at a couple’s home more than once during the three months the group is together. If you can’t or don’t like to cook, you may bring drinks, buy something pre-made, or whatever your group decides. Or you may all agree to meet at a restaurant. It is completely up to the group!

Q:  Will there be separate groups for singles & couples?

A:  No, our goal is to mix everyone together. It will be more fun that way!

Q:  I have children. What happens to them?

A:  It is up to the group to determine if children will be a part of the meal or not. Ideas for dealing with the kids include: children can play or watch TV quietly in another room after the meal, a teen child of someone in the group can babysit young children at the parent’s home, or parents of young children may need to find their own babysitter.
