OUR DINNER CHURCH SOFT L
AUNCH RECAP -
We had our Dinner Church 'soft launch' on Monday from 5pm to 6:30pm and it was incredible. The food was fantastic, the music was lovely, the atmosphere was beautiful and the Dinner Church team did an excellent job of prepping, setting up, serving, and cleaning up. We had about 40 people in attendance and during it we took some time to pray for the Dinner Church, the community, and the Dinner Church team.
WE CAN'T WAIT FOR THE OFFICIAL LAUNCH ON MONDAY SEPTEMBER 11TH!
If you are interested in learning more about this, getting involved with this, or just have some more questions about our Dinner Church please send a note to our Dinner Church Director Ben Hurst HERE and he will be in touch.
