Every year, our church does something called 'Guess who's coming for dinner'. This is the first year that we have participated, as last year we were still farely new to the church. What happens is, you sign up to either be a host, or a guest. The social committee then takes all those people, and divides them up. We found out that we were going to Elmer and Ruth Toews for supper. There would be one other couple, but we didn't know who they were. Also, Elmer and Ruth had no idea who was coming. I was told to bring a salad and bread. So I made a spinach salad with cashews and craisins, as well as garlic bread. When we got there, we discovered that Abe and Luella Klassen were the other couple. What a great evening. Luella made a honey baked chicken with rice and Ruth made a delicious strawberry/cream cheese/pudding pie for dessert.
It really was a fun evening. We have been going to Bethel church now for a little over a year, but we still don't know everyone, obviously. This was a great opportunity to better get to know people in our church. Definitely something that we will continue to do in the years to come.
I have to mention how much we like this church. Since day one, people have made us feel so welcome. Its a great feeling. Although I knew alot of people in the church when we first started, there were still many that I didn't know. Throughout the past year + I have cultivated friendships with new people and it's awesome. Obviously you have to put yourself out there a little bit, but once you do, new things happen.
