Circle Dinners

Circle Dinners give you a chance to get to know folks you may not have met at church yet, while sitting round the dinner table at someone’s home enjoying conversation and shared food.

Each dinner gives you a chance to get to know new people from the church.  Dinners are scheduled 2 to 4 times a year, and usually have 6-10 people at each event (including hosts).  In addition to the space, hosts usually provide the entree, while guests bring side dishes and desserts.  Discussion topics are generally spontaneous and varied.

The UUCV women’s group, SIS (Sisters in Spirit) organizes Circle Dinners for the congregation three or four times a year, Look for posted notices and announcements in our newsletter, On Common Ground, and in social media. During the month prior to a dinner, SIS will be at a table in Berg Hall following Sunday services to provide how-to information and suggestions about hosting or attending.

The dinners are a great way for new members and friends to meet others. Longer-time members can choose to attend a dinner where they will meet those they do not know well. And, it is just plain fun to spend an evening with UUs.
