Come Grow With Us
Every week across Jackson and West Tennessee, we meet in groups called Dinner Parties. We meet to eat, build friendships, discuss scripture, and pray for one another. In the busyness of life, our prayer is that no one would be isolated!

WHAT IS A DINNER PARTY?
Dinner Parties are designed to help create three basic things: friendships, spiritual maturity, and boldness. Dinner Parties are meant to be a laid back atmosphere where you feel comfortable.
WHO ARE DINNER PARTIES FOR?
Dinner Parties are for everyone! There are no age, gender, or marital restrictions. We have a separate college group, but everyone else is welcome to a Dinner Party!
HOW DO I CHOOSE A DINNER PARTY?
To make it most convenient for our leaders, and for you, the Dinner Parties are geographical. We encourage people to join the Dinner Party closest to them! But ultimately you decide which group you want to join!
WHEN DO DINNER PARTIES MEET?
Dinner Parties meet on different days of the week. Each Dinner Party will decide with the Host when is best for everyone. Dinner Parties won’t meet during Holiday weeks, special events, etc.
WHAT IS THE COMMITMENT TO A DINNER PARTY?
We ask that you commit to 4 simple things:
- Family- Everyone is committed to building friendships that feel like family around food and fun.
- Prayer- Everyone is committed to praying for each other and a lost friend daily.
- Consistency- Everyone is committed to attending at least 75% of the Dinner Parties. Without consistency, we can’t build a family atmosphere.
- Welcoming- Everyone is committed to being welcoming to one another and anyone that shows up at a Dinner Party.
HOW DOES A DINNER PARTY WORK?
Every Dinner Party is centered around three things: food, discussion, and prayer. You will gather and have fun and eat together. You will discuss the previous week’s sermon, and you will pray for each other and a lost friend (you don’t have to pray if you aren’t comfortable).
WHERE ARE DINNER PARTIES?
We have multiple groups that meet in homes through Madison, Gibson, and Henderson Counties!
HOW LONG IS A DINNER PARTY?
Dinner Parties commit to two semesters together (Fall and Spring with school). Dinner Parties are no less than 1 hour and no more than 2 hours.
WHERE DO MY KIDS GO?
Each Dinner Party is different. Some of our groups are not kid friendly. Others have play rooms, and some even hire trusted baby sitters to care for groups of kids. We want to help eliminate all barriers from joining a group. We will reimburse childcare costs so you can attend a group! See the form below!
WHAT IF I JOIN ONE, BUT DECIDE I DON'T LIKE IT?
That’s okay, too! We want everyone to be in a Dinner Party, and enjoy it! We just ask that you give it 6-8 weeks before you throw in the towel.
WHO IS WELCOME TO A DINNER PARTY?
Everyone! While we use discussion based on each week's sermon, our Dinner Parties are "open" groups, so anyone at any time can join a Dinner Party. We encourage people to invite their friends that don't go to church to join them in their DP. Some people will come to a home to eat before coming to church. That's totally fine with us!
