Following the ChristCare Small Groups model, the Dinners for Eight groups meet once a month to share a meal and enjoy the fellowship of a small group. While the groups practice all four ChristCare activities—Community Building and Care, Biblical Equipping, Prayer and Worship, and Missional Service—the emphasis in each group is different, even with the main focus being Christian fellowship.
Each group decides how they will share the table: rotating between homes, choosing a restaurant or rotating between restaurants, or meeting at church. They may choose to have the host couple make dinner, share pot-luck style, do take-out, or eat out. They may do breakfast or lunch rather than dinner, or just have dessert meetings. Groups do what works for the members, making it something to really forward to each month.
