Come share in the work and the fun of hosting friends and neighbors for a special evening of delicious food, live music by Kindred Spirits, and great fellowship with one another.

All proceeds from the dinner go to support local needs in our community through the programs of Help by Phone, the PG Plaza Day Center (CUCE), and others.
There’s lot of ways to help! Make sauce, help set-up, serve, clean-up. Call the church office to sign up or learn more.
“Faith Imagination is a way of praying in which we specifically invite God to enter into our experience in a way that we can perceive God’s work in us. We do this in the faith that God want to meet us at our growing edge, or where we are most vulnerable, hurting or scared.” (Consenting to Grace, Tilda Norberg)
