On Sunday February 28th, immediately following the service, there will be an International Potluck Dinner AND Music Event. Bring yourself, friends and family. Bring food to share – that’s what “potluck” means, everyone provides some of the food.
Start thinking now of what 2 traditional dishes you would like to bring to represent your home-land. Then think of who you can invite to come and enjoy the great variety of international flavors that represents the congregation of All Nations Church. In the past we have experienced foods from more then 20 cultures represented in our church.
Please avoid using nuts or nut oil in the dish you bring. If you do, please label it clearly!! Please note we do not have the ability to re-heat your food item when you arrive to church, though we have some outlets available for electric pots. Please come 15 minutes early to the Worship service so you can pass along your food item to the kitchen volunteers.
SINGLES: Please just bring dessert or one dish to feed 6-8 people.
GUESTS: no need to bring anything, please just come and enjoy.

What to bring to the International Potluck and Music extravaganza
- Yourself, friends and family
- TWO* main food dishes to share that reflect your country of origin or culture (Each dish should be large enough to serve 8 people)
- SINGLES: Please just bring dessert or one dish to feed 6-8 people.
- GUESTS: no need to bring anything, please just come and enjoy
- Please avoid using nuts or nut oil in the dish you bring (some folks have serious allergies)
- If you bring a dessert, please insure that the other dish is a main course
- Please come 15 minutes early to the Worship service to pass along your food item.
- We will supply all drinks and dishes etc.
*Last year we only brought one main dish to share and we ran out of food near the end.
I realize it is harder to prepare two dishes but that is what we need from each family if it is to be a good experience for those that are last in line!
We hope to see you there!
