Event description

Description

Alright folks, the holidays are here. How ya' feeling about that?

Some of already decorated your house for Christmas while drinking a pumpkin spice latte and humming It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. (You probably also turned your AC down so you could wear a scarf. It's ok. We don't judge.)

Some of you are wanting to crawl under a rock for the next two months. Maybe you dread the music, the mandatory gift-buying, the idea of family dinners with people who are going to ask why you're not married/having kids/earning more/generally being like your older sibling. (Or maybe you just have green fur and a heart two sizes two small. It's ok. We don't judge you either.)

Either way, you need to come to the gastrochurch table before you go to your Thanksgiving table. We're going to talk about gratitude. And disappointment. And life the way we actually live it, instead of just what we put on social media. Whether you love this season or hate it, we want your voice at the table.

FAQs

What exactly is gastrochurch?

Dinner, drinks, and spiritual conversation. Our topics are explored from a Christian worldview (hence the "church" in gastrochurch), but all worldviews are welcome. If you're interested in connecting with real people over things that really matter in your life, gastrochurch is for you. If you want more information, or a general sense of what the gatherings are like, check out www.gastrochurch.org.

What if I have dietary contraints?

That's perfectly fine. We can work with just about anything. After you register, just email gastrochurch@gastrochurch.org with your dietary constraint.

Does this cost anything?

If this is your first time, no. Dinner is on us. If you've come before, we just ask for a donation. Give whatever you can. You can add your donation in the "donation" line of the registration, find us on Venmo as gastrochurch htx, or give on our website: http://www.gastrochurch.org/give.

Can I bring friends?

Absolutely. Brings friends, neighbors, random people you meet on the train, and your second cousin you never talk to. Just make sure to register for the appropriate number of tickets so we know how many to prepare for.

How long will it last?

Our dinners last 2-2.5 hrs, depending on how much people talk. Part of the intention behind gastrochurch is to serve slow food, in every sense of the term. There aren't many times in our society when people spend two hours around the table anymore, and we think that's a shame.

What should I bring to the gathering?

You are welcome to bring a beverage to share. We'll have a variety of non-alcoholic drinks, as well as beer and wine, but feel free to bring your favorite beverage to share.

How can I find out about future events?

Sign up for our email list to get updates about upcoming gatherings.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Feel free to email any questions to gastrochurch@gastrochurch.org. You can also text Meredith at 979-221-8509.
