Community Night will resume Thursday, September 21st, 2017.

This year, we continue our Community Night tradition. Every Thursday evening starting mid September through mid November for the fall season and again starting in February through April for spring, join us at 6:00 PM in the Johnson Room, for food and friendship. Each week features the talents of the fabulous cooks in our congregation: two main dishes (one vegetarian), as well as sides, salad and bread. A donation of $5 per adult, $2 per child under ten, or $10 per family, covers the cost of the meal. If you’d like to join, but have dietary restrictions or preferences, you are welcome to bring your own meal.
