Arbor Road Church is growing which can make it tricky to get to know to people. If you’ve been attending for a few months now, or many years…yet still have that feeling that you don’t really know that many people around here, then Summer Social is for you! July 24 we’ll be meeting in the homes of people from church for a meal, and some time to simply hang out and get to know one another.

But first…we need Hosts! This can only work with YOUR help and hospitality! Check out the Question/Answers below to see if this sounds like something you’d be interested in doing then if we haven’t scared you away click the button below to Sign-Up to Host!

HOST QUESTIONS

Great question. The purpose of this event is to build community. As you know, community is a huge value for us as a church. We hope this event will create another opportunity to get connected and meet new people.

Not at all! This is a one-time commitment. You are only committing to host a dinner for the event.

About 8 people including the hosts.

No. It will be potluck style. Everyone will be encouraged to bring a dish to share. We encourage hosts to coordinate with the rest of the group.

Not a problem. You are more than welcome to host even if you cannot cook. We are so grateful you are willing to open up your home. Our recommendation would be to grab takeout.

Somewhat. You should live fairly close to the Towne Center since the event will end there.

Not a problem. Just let us know when you sign up. People will be notified as they sign up just in case they have any allergies.

Great! If you have kids and don’t mind others bringing their kids, let us know when you sign up to host.

DINNER GUEST QUESTIONS

Great question. The purpose of this event is to build community. As you know, community is a huge value for us as a church. We hope this event will create another opportunity to get connected and meet new people.

Nope! This is a one-time commitment.

Great! This dinner will not take the place of your current group, but we do encourage you to grab dinner with people you don’t already know.

We will have sign-ups on July 10th and July 17th after each service.

Not a problem. That is the whole purpose of the event. We hope this event will help you get connected. If you need help in picking a group, email Pastor Alan at AlanKim@ArborRoad.com

Yes! Dinner will be potluck style, so bring a dish to share.

You will want to have money for dessert at the Long Beach Towne Center but the event itself is free; just bring a dish to share.

Dessert and hanging out! Grab some dessert with your group or get to know people from other groups. Leave as you please.

That’s up to you! Some groups will be open to bring your kids, so make sure to check before you sign up.

SOUND LIKE FUN?

If you aren’t interested in hosting but would love to attend as a guest, please be sure to visit the lobby after service on
