Supper Clubs are an expression of Christian fellowship and hospitality. They are a great way for everyone who calls Sequoyah Church their “church home” to meet other friends they may have shared fellowship with or have worshipped with. These dinners are held in a casual, but lively setting of eight to ten persons. Groups will meet at least 4 or 5 times from October through May. All adults (regardless of age or marital status) are encouraged to sign up! Participation of children is at the discretion of the host; however, childcare is typically not available. Call 522-9804 or email email@example.com. for more information.
