Potluck Luncheon

Second Sunday each month,
after service

On the second Sunday of each month, September thru June, the Fellowship hosts a Potluck Luncheon. Members, guests and visitors are encouraged to attend and bring with them a homemade dish to share that will serve five or six people. The contribution can be anything from a warm casserole to a chilled salad; breads and desserts are also welcome. It is a cherished time to socialize, try new foods and dwell together in intergenerational community.

Frequently Asked Questions about Potluck

When does potluck occur?
Second Sunday of the month, after service, from October through April. September and June have special events planned, and in May we give families a chance to celebrate Mother's Day.

What should I bring?
Those who have young children may want to bring kid-friendly food such as pizza, hot dogs, or chicken nuggets; vegetarian dishes could be labeled to help those who are looking for that kind of food; soups, stews and casseroles are always well received as well as fruit, green salad and bread and cheese. Desserts are always appreciated, pre-sliced or in individual portions. We ask that you bring enough for 6-8 people. We supply coffee, cold drinks and paper supplies.

I'm not a cook, what can I bring to participate?
Snack chips or veggies with dips, platter of sliced deli meats and cheeses with bread, fresh seasonal fruit or fruit salad, tossed green salads, bakery desserts.

Where do I put my dish before church?
In the refrigerator, ovens (will be on 300 degrees) or in the coffee room if neither of those other places are appropriate.

How do we know when pot luck is ready?
The door between the sanctuary and coffee room will magically open and it will be announced.

How is pot luck like the airport?
Parents with small children will go first.

How can I make pot luck happen easily and quickly?
Bring a dish to share. Help with setting up the tables and chairs. Make sure your dish is ready to serve (cut/ portioned, heated or warming, accompanied by the correct serving utensil) after service.

What needs to be done after pot luck is over?
Wipe off dining tables, put away coffee supplies, empty coffee urns, clear and wipe drink cart and return to RE kitchen, wipe off serving tables and return to the walls, wash out large church dishes and put smaller items in the dishwasher, take trash to dumpster. Check the job jar.

What is the very last thing to remember?
Take your serving dish and leftovers home. They will be waiting for you in the coffee room.
