Foyer Groups forming for new year.
A Foyer Group is a small group of parishioners who meet informally (3 or 4 times), usually over a meal. The Redeemer is a fairly large community. Many of us openly admit that we really know only a few members of our parish family. Foyer Groups offer the opportunity for newcomers and longtime members alike to get to know one another better. Once people have signed up, a coordinator forms groups of 8-10 people – singles and couples - ideally from different spheres within the parish and at varying stages of life. There are plenty of options for meeting places, but generally Foyer Group members take turns hosting meetings at their homes. A meal usually serves as the format, with the “host” providing the main course (anything from a sit-down dinner to a backyard barbecue) and others bringing appetizers, salad, bread, dessert, and whatever libations the group prefers. While groups meet on different days at various times, a 3-hour time frame is generally respected. To sign up or for more information, please contact Jan Clarke.
