Think of it like a one-night dinner club! Sign up and you'll be assigned as a host home to go to on 4/27 for dinner with other women. That's it!
Sign up by confirming your attendance here.
If you'd like, you may request to be assigned to the same group as one friend. After that, it's pretty random and you're sure to make new friends of various ages!
If we look around us today at our culture, there is more division than there is unity. Some division is trivial. Some is life changing. And yet, into this landscape, the Gospel speaks a profound truth: in Christ, we are united. We are together.
