Dinners for 8
Dinners for 8 Coming this Fall! Dinners for 8 are multi-family dinners for people from Trinity to gather together for dinner and discussion. The goal of Dinners for 8 is to help our Trinity family get to know each other better in a meaningful way; to share life together. Dinners for 8 are not a replacement for Community Groups, but a supplement, designed to provide a smaller environment for relational growth. To learn more about Dinners for 8, read the following FAQs. You can sign up HERE.
What is the difference between a Community Group and Dinners for 8?
Community groups at Trinity tend to be large, and while they are a great place to get to know people at Trinity, oftentimes it’s more difficult to get to know people intimately in larger settings. That’s where Dinners for 8 comes in. The smaller environment lends itself to making sure everyone participates in conversation and that important topics regarding faith, life, etc., are able to be discussed.
Can I be a part of a Community Group and participate in Dinners for 8 at the same time?
What happens in a Dinners for 8?
Adults from up to 4 family units (up to 8 adults), along with their children, come together for a leisurely meal together and spend time doing something we do less and less in today’s world: have face-to-face conversations. Each group can decide how food will be provided and where each dinner will take place.
Is childcare provided?
Each Dinners for 8 group can choose whether or not it would like childcare. If desired, childcare is provided by Trinity free of charge.
