Do many of your parishioners tell you that they can’t remember the last time they sat down together as a family and had dinner together? Many Americans find themselves over scheduled. Kids are in sports, clubs, and other after-school activities. Meanwhile, parents are working longer hours and sometimes have multiple jobs. It can be difficult to get everyone to sit down at the same time to discuss their lives or just their day. That is why an increasing number of churches are holding weekly or monthly family dinner nights.
How is Family Dinner Night Done?
These dinner nights provide an opportunity for parents, children, and other family members to sit down together, along with their church family, to enjoy dinner and an activity afterwards, such as a Bible study or a movie. Wednesday night fellowship dinners are particularly popular.
Churches handle the food preparation differently. Sometimes members volunteer to cook the dinner, with attendees paying a nominal charge to cover the cost. In other cases, neighborhood restaurants provide discounts for their food. Either way, folks have a chance to sit down to a good meal at a reasonable price without having to cook. It’s also a great way to give Mom or Dad a break from cooking for an evening.
Chairs and Tables for Comfortable and Affordable Family Dinner Nights
If your church is considering having family dinners, you want to make sure that you have plenty of banquet chairs and banquet tables to accommodate everyone. We offer premium and discount banquet chairs that are comfortable and stylish. They come pre-assembled in a variety of colors and fabrics. If you order fifty or more, shipping is free to most states. You can find our banquet chairs at http://www.advantagechurchchairs.com/Banquet-Chairs-s/21.htm.
If you prefer to go with something more casual, we offer a variety of folding chairs made out of wood, plastic, and metal. These are particularly nice if you decide to take the dinner outside for a picnic on the church grounds. They can also be used for other activities, including classes and group meetings. You can browse our selection of folding chairs at http://www.advantagechurchchairs.com/Folding-Chairs-s/23.htm.
We also offer banquet tables in all shapes and sizes. Our round café tables allow each family to dine separately and have their privacy. You can order larger folding tables to encourage people to dine with others in their church family. Why not get some of each? We also have long tables that can be used for serving. You can see our selection of banquet tables at http://www.advantagechurchchairs.com/Banquet-Tables-s/33.htm.
Most of our tables fold up when not in use, so they can be stored without taking up valuable space when not in use. We sell table and chair caddies that allow you to stack and move your furniture easily.
Dinner nights do more than help families re-connect with each other. They also provide a casual setting where people can get to know their fellow church members, pastors, and staff. They help build solidarity within the church family and can help you increase attendance at your weekly services.
