SUPPER CLUB: Supper Club is a group couples/singles who meet for dinners and socializing throughout the year. Groups of 4 couples/singles will be formed. Your group will then meet 4 times during the next year, once at each of the couples/singles home for dinner. This is a GREAT way to socialize and get to know others here at St. Paul! Look for the signup sheet in the Sign-Up book in the narthex. Please sign up by Sunday November 18th. If you are in need of babysitting, please indicate when you sign up. Many of our high school girls are interested in babysitting and we can give you a list of youth from our church who you may call for babysitting for supper club. The beginning of December, we will randomly select the groups, and inform each couple/single of your group. Any questions, please contact, Deb or Al Rothermel (627-2107 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
