Nurturing Our Community 2020

Nurturing Our Community (NOC) is now in its fourth exciting year. Members and friends of the Center volunteer to host a dinner, picnic, or other gathering for a predetermined number of guests. The meal/event can be held anytime from May through November, and it can be in your home or any other location.

The events involve “breaking bread together”—casual picnics or elegant meals—and may include entertainment, games to play, or other activities.

Members and friends bid on the events during a Silent Auction after services on three Sundays: April 5, 12, and 19.

As a host, your cost to put on the event is a donation to the Center and all proceeds raised in the Silent Auction will go directly to the Center. Think of something you would love to share or do, from serving a gourmet meal to flying kites at the park and enjoying a bag lunch. Be creative with your meal ideas and descriptions and know that an NOC team member may edit or “spice up” the description for you.

To be a host, sign up on or before February 16. You can download an application form, pick one up at the Center during weekday office hours, or on Sunday at our table in the Social Hall.
