Join us this summer for a gathering!
We can’t wait to see you!

Intimate Dinners

Some of our community members are opening their homes to us for in-person dinners so that we can enjoy a meal together! There will be some guided conversation following the meal. See below for specifics on each dinner.

July 17 from 5pm – 8pm hosted by Jim and Kim Lifton in Park Ridge. Jim and Kim will provide the meal. This dinner is exclusively in-person – max capacity of 8 guests.

July 25 from 5pm – 8pm hosted by Maria Ortiz in Portage Park. Maria will provide the entree, sides, and dessert. She requests guests bring appetizers or drinks. This dinner is exclusively in-person – max capacity of 9 guests.

August 13 from 5pm – 8pm hosted by Rev. Shawna Bowman in Edgewater. This will be a potluck so bring a dish to share! Be sure to keep track of all of the ingredients you use so that we can make sure folks know what’s in each dish. This will be a hybrid event, so there is a max capacity of 8 guests in Shawna’s home, and then we will have a Zoom link set up for folks to log in and join that way.
