Connect 7 is Back!

After the past two years of Connect 7 and Dinner for 7, we’re back with another round of Connect 7. If you’d like to host, please sign up for a hosting slot in the west narthex and choose an activity you’d like to plan. For hosts, the activity you plan might be dinner or you could plan a hike, a meeting for coffee, a board game night, whatever fun fellowship activity you can dream up. If you want to be a guest, sign up to attend on the same poster board. The goal is to meet new people so try to join a group with members you might not know well.

Sign up closes on Feb. 1. Questions? E-mail Rob Owen at
