Dinner Mixer

Saturday, May 18, 2019 • 6pm in the gym

You are invited! We are hosting a dinner & game night open to all adults and high schoolers (no childcare provided). Why? To have fun and get to know each other! We are hoping to get a wide mix of people. We know it is short notice, but please RSVP by Tuesday if you would like to attend! You can sign up at church Sunday or notify the church office any time before Tuesday night.
 
The game we will be playing during dinner is The Great Dalmuti:
 
Life isn’t fair. And neither is The Great Dalmuti. In one round you’re at the top of the heap, and in the next you could be peasant scum. In this fast-paced game of medieval one-upmanship, players take their places in the pecking order, from Greater Peon to Greater Dalmuti. But the roles change in every round, so get rid of the cards in your hand fast. The quicker you rid yourself of your cards, the higher you’ll go. But don’t get comfortable in the cushy Greater Dalmuti chair because even the lowliest peon can unseat you and boot you out the door. Sounds unfair, sure it is. But the sweet taste of victory could make it all worthwhile. This short, fast-paced, fun card game is easy to learn and play.


VBS

June 23-26, 2019 • 6-8pm

Calling all kids ages 3 years through those who are in (or have just completed) 5th grade!
