Table Top Talks Re-shuffle in September!
We have 7 Groups! Some groups need a sub-contact the Parish Office if interested!

Well, the Table Top Talk Groups are off and running!  We have 7 full groups with room to add a sub person here or there.  New groups will be formed in September so if you want to join, let the parish office know and we can put you on the list.

Groups will meet March, April and May, break for the summer and a new mix of people will start again in September for three months. This plan allows new people to join every three months.

WHAT ARE TABLE TOP TALKS (aka Foyer Groups)? Foyer Groups are a fun and easy way for parishioners to gather together on an informal basis to enjoy one another’s company, to strengthen bonds of community, to meet new members and just get to know other people who share a common interest in St. James’ but with whom we might not otherwise interact.

There is no agenda or plan – just casual fellowship and a refreshing meal. Groups are made up of  a cross section of the parish. Out of the meetings, friendships develop among people who might not have any other opportunity to meet and get to know each other. Newcomers are especially invited to sign up to join one of the groups.

Each small group will be six to eight people meeting once a month. Your group decides on the day and time, beginning in March and ending in May, meeting in homes or at church in the Lakeside Room. Generally, the host/hostess provides the main entree and each person or couple brings one part of the meal. Some groups may decide to  discuss a book or article, while others gather for a purely social experience. The choice of available options is limited only by the group, but the main idea is for the gatherings to simply focus on fellowship, a refreshing meal and relaxed conversation. 

In  the past we had Foyer Groups for many years and people have been asking if we could start again-new name same Fellowship Fun! It is a wonderful way to get to know more people at church beyond sharing the peace. Sign up by calling the office. If you have any interest or questions, ask Nancy Graham, or 315.317.0138
