PebbleCreek Community Church celebrates fellowship with a progressive dinner

Larry Sessoms

A time of fellowship always follows our Sunday services, but with the help of our Fellowship Committee other opportunities for Christian fellowship are brought to us throughout the year. We have catered dinners with entertainment; less formal potlucks with square dances, line dances and other programs; attend ball games; bus to special events; and, of course, we are always on the lookout for new ideas. This year we welcomed back snowbirds with a progressive dinner. Seventy-five of us gathered first for appetizers at one home. We then branched out to nine other homes for dinner, followed, of course, by dessert at the home of yet another host. A truly wonderful time was had by all!

How it worked: Homes hosting dinner all received the groceries necessary to make an Irish stew that baked in the oven for two hours, thus allowing dinner hosts to attend the appetizer portion of the evening. Those homes that were not hosting appetizers, dinner, or dessert brought either an appetizer or a dessert, delivering them to the respective homes by 4 p.m. before the 5 p.m. start of “formalities.” Near the end of the appetizer portion of the evening all gathered around for prayer, and to sing Roll Out The Barrel and I Wanna Hold Your Hand—not traditional church songs, but hopefully appropriate for the evening!

Come join us when we meet in our Eagle’s Nest Ballroom on Sundays at 9 a.m. And check out our new website at
