Foyer Groups

So, what exactly are Dinner Groups?  Known also as Foyer Groups or formerly Dining With Good Shepherds (D.W.G.S.), these fun fellowship opportunities offer a unique opportunity to meet others at Good Shepherd.


Foyer Groups are a fun and easy way for parishioners to gather together on a regular but informal basis for purely social reasons – to enjoy one another’s company, to strengthen bonds of community, to meet new members and just to get to know other people who share a common interest in Good Shepherd but with whom we might not otherwise interact. Newcomers are especially invited to join one of the groups at any time.
 
Each small group of six to eight people meet once every four to six weeks during the church year, beginning in December and continuing through May, in the home of one of the members of the group. Generally, the host provides the main course while the other members fill in the rest of the meal such as beverages, appetizer, bread, salad, dessert, etc.
