SISTERS OF BEDE

Sisters of Bede is the Women's Evening fellowship open to all women of the parish. The monthly potluck dinner meetings are held in Luther Hall at 7:00 p.m. on the first Monday of most months. The meetings are loosely structured. We pray together, enjoy a potluck meal, and have spiritual discussions. All women of the parish are invited to come join us for great food, fun, and fellowship!

Host Venue Planning Information

The Sisters invite you to sponsor an event!  Pick a theme, create a menu; choose a date, time and place; decide how many guests. If you need assistance determining an appropriate charge, check in with any of the sisters.

 

Important: If you would like to host an event in Luther Hall, please notify us as soon as possible so we can ensure the Hall will be available. The garden outside offers wonderful possibilities as well. We can assist with Hybrid/ or Virtual events.

 

If you have any questions, or need ideas, please see one of the Sisters. Proceeds from the events go to the church and its charities. You can sponsor an event individually, with a friend, or another family member.  
 

Here are just a FEW virtual event ideas to consider.

  • Virtual Dinner - Food ordered from restaurant,  guests join together on a Zoom  

  • Cooking Demonstrations

  • Scavenger Hunt

  • Fashion Show

  • Group Activity, such as Tai Chi or Chi Gong, etc.

  • A Live Concert (broadcast using Facebook or another online venue)

  • View a short video film  together, with follow up discussion

  • Game Night

  • Spiritual Guided Virtual Walk

  • Kids of Bede event

Feel free to be creative, and check in if you want some ideas or feedback.
Please email or call Liz, Daphne, Annette, or Tana if you would like to brainstorm or talk about logistics for your venue.

 

Our goal is to offer small group social gatherings, while continuing to raise funds for St. Bede's Outreach.

Our thanks to everyone for their support by hosting and attending events. We look forward to another fantastic series of great fun, food and fellowship!
