ADVENT DINNER | Saturday, December 2nd @ 5pm
The Advent Dinner is an annual tradition at St. John’s. The season of advent kicks off with a little bit of fancy and a lot of fellowship. This year’s Advent Dinner will feature Lessons and Carols at 5pm in the sanctuary, followed by a potluck dinner, carols and dessert in the Parish Hall. Make something or buy something to contribute. Wine and mocktails will be provided.
Anyone interested in hosting a table is invited to do so. The Table hosts picks a theme, a color scheme, and decorates their table as elaborate or simple as they want. The attendees tour the tables and vote on categories such as "best theme", "best first impression," and "most creative." Winning Table Hosts will receive a prize. The host provides an appetizer for 15-20 people and may invite up to 6 guest (including the host) to sit at their table. Guest may be members of the church, family or friends. There will be additional tables for general RSVP seating.
