Dinners with Friends

Started in 1995, Northaven now has a number of small groups called "Dinner with Friends" that gather for the warmth and hospitality that help build a sense of community. These dinner groups simply give Northaven people the opportunity to know each other at a deeper level. If interested in knowing more , please contact Jack Evans or Connie Marshall or sign up in the Atrium. 


2nd Tuesday Northaven Women's Book Study Group, 9:30 a.m. — Noon

Women who are members or friends of Northaven meet monthly to discuss a selected book. Members, and sometimes authors, lead the discussion, followed by lunch at a nearby restaurant. The members of this group also participate in United Methodist Women activities. For location of meetings and more information, contact Kay Dozier.
