Fireside Fellowship is happening this summer!! Join us on Sunday evenings in July and August (omitting August 4, the long weekend) anytime between 5:30 and 9:30 for some great times of food and gathering together. How it works:
1. Sign up to host an evening at your place on the sign up sheet in the foyer by the mailboxes. Hosts simply provide either a BBQ or fire pit and some condiments, and then wait for people to show up!
2. Attend a fireside evening! Things to bring: hot dogs or burgers, and/or any other food you'd like to eat or share. Dishes, cups, and beverages. Lawn chairs, wiener roasting sticks, lawn games, etc.
Watch the bulletin for updates each week on where the Fireside will be held. In case of rain or weeks when no one has signed up to host, the event will be canceled.
