Read an Excerpt

Welcome to Group's Dinner and a Movie, a resource for small groups that really love food and movies! During these out-of-the-ordinary small group events, you'll cook a meal together with your friends, and you'll enjoy lively discussion around the dinner table (Mealtime TalkStarters are included with each event). Then you'll watch a movie together and enjoy some really great snacks. Afterward you'll discuss the spiritual themes of the movie.

Cooking and sharing meals together will really increase the intimacy of the fellowship in your small group. As you chop, stir, cook, eat, and laugh together, you'll learn about one another and build memories that will last a lifetime. You'll learn to be a community. Isn't that just what God wants for your group?

Not only that, there's much to learn about ourselves and God in the movies. You'll see sin, betrayal, regret, and revenge. You'll also see love, sacrifice, grace, and redemption. All of these themes, played out in a variety of comedies and adventure stories, can powerfully teach your small group about God and how to follow him more. Besides that, watching these movies with an eye toward the spiritual will teach your small group to look for God in every movie or TV show they watch.

These events are great anytime. They're perfect to use for a party or fellowship evening or when you're between studies. You can have a Dinner and a Movie once a quarter, once a month, or anytime your group would enjoy something a little different.

We hope you enjoy these Dinner and a Movie events! Start the show!
