“New First” had its inaugural gathering on a cold night last month, when an eclectic group of us, most of whom whom barely knew each other, met in a restaurant in Northern Liberties.
By the end of the evening, when we closed the place down, the initial chill had dissipated, and all agreed it was a worthwhile endeavor and a fun way to get to know each other beyond the set time that we meet on Sunday mornings.
“New First” stands for “None Excluded When Fellowship Inspires Relationships Sustaining Trust.” This is a group that transcends labels; it is for everyone regardless of where you live, who you are, and how you define yourself. The New First Supper Club gathers every 4th Friday.
We’d like to welcome you to join us in this unique fellowship endeavor. We recognize that dining out is a luxury so we’ll try to keep our venue choice within a “reasonable” range, and our plan is to dine close to Center City, near public transportation.
This month it’s Indian food, so if you’d prefer something less spicy, just show up and help us pick next month’s restaurant (and we can probably help you pick something mild from among the Indian offerings!).
Remember that it is BYOB, and please try to let us know if you are coming on our Facebook page (under events) by next Tuesday at the latest (or you can let Mindy know at the church office, and she will pass along your RSVP)… so we can make a fairly accurate reservation.
If you have any questions, please speak to Mike W. or Karen or Michael.
