Foyer is a French word that means “hearth” or “fireside,” suggesting a group that is relaxed, receptive, and open to each other. A foyer is a caring, sharing, and loving community where casual acquaintances can develop into deeper and more meaningful relationships. A foyer enables the members to become a community. Foyers are one aspect of Pullen’s ministry of reconciliation in conjunction with the Community of the Cross of Nails.
Foyers are not intended to do anything, but simply to be what Christians are—groups of people who love one another. We hope you’ll consider joining a foyer group!
2019-2020 foyer group registration ended Sunday October 13. Thank you to everyone who registered! If you missed the deadline please contact Pat Thomas.
How does a foyer work?
A foyer consists of six to eight adults—or approximately three family units, in the case of family foyers—who meet in each household once for a simple meal. Church membership is not required. Each household takes a turn as host, preparing and serving the meal. The meal is “in the style of the house.” Foyer meeting dates and times are decided by group consensus.
In the foyer there is no agenda. It is not a prayer group or a Bible study group. The only structured element is time. The foyer meal usually lasts 2 hours. It is a relaxed, informal gathering for food, fun and fellowship.
Sign up for Pullen’s foyer groups occurs in the fall with the reshuffling of old members and the addition of new ones.
