Fall 2023 Season of St. James' Foyer Groups
Starting up again in October
This is a personal invitation to join St. James’ Church Foyer Groups!
Foyer Groups (for the French word meaning hearth or home) provide opportunities to meet and connect with new people while enjoying a meal together.
Foyer Groups are small groups of parishioners who meet monthly during a six-month period for simple meals and conversation.
What do participants enjoy most about Foyer Groups?
“We’ve connected with people who don’t attend our usual worship time and made all kinds of connections and friends.”
“The variety of the food is enjoyable, as is the experience of being in someone’s home and receiving their hospitality.”
“Gathering to break bread is a wonderful spiritual experience.”
There’s no agenda or formal program, members simply get to know each other as part of our community of faith.
Meetings often take place in the homes of group members, although groups have held informal picnics! Don’t be concerned that your house is not grand enough to host, nor your culinary skills gourmet enough to share. Our focus is on friendship and fellowship.
Our Spring/Summer session was very successful with more than 60 participants! Each group was made up of a variety of ages, new members and returning members, from different worship services. We are preparing for our Fall/Winter session which will go from October through March and hope you will consider participating in a Foyer Groups.
To sign up, click the "Register" button or call the Parish Office (703-777-1124).
I hope you will prayerfully consider my invitation and I look forward to seeing you in church and/or a Foyer Group soon.
