FALL FELLOWSHIP DINNERS will be held in October and November.
Because this is fall is a busy season with Revelations, Cooks Night Out, and the church picnic, we are scheduling only one dinner.  The host can choose whether to schedule the dinner in October or November.


This fall registration will be handled differently than in the past.  We are first asking that those people who are willing to host a Fellowship Dinner please
register on the PIC board.  Once we know how many people will be hosting, then we know how many guests we can accommodate.  If you are willing to host a dinner, please sign up now through September 13th.  Please indicate the
number of people you can accommodate for dinner in your home, including the host/hosts.  Once we have the list of hosts, there will be a sign up sheet for

people wanting to attend a dinner,  as we have done in the past.
