Dinner & Wine tasting Groups (Friends & Food)
Monthly dinners groups meet over a four-month period twice a year
If you like good food and want to meet more people in the church, a Lunch or Dinner Group is a great place for you. New groups are formed each spring and fall. Participants are matched with six-to-eight other people for four monthly dinners, rotating in homes. The host provides the entree' and beverages and other bring appetizers, sides, and dessert.
Similar to the dinner groups, the FPC Wine Tasting Groups have three or four Large Group tastings each year where everyone brings an appetizer to share. There are also two or three formatted wine tastings that evening. Between large group tastings, similar groups of a dozen or so may meet monthly for formatted wine tastings and "learning sessions." For example, one month might be all 2013 California cabernet sauvignons.
For either of these groups, contact: Chick Freund (770) 795-1755
