Purpose

Party of One, A Fellowship for Those Tired of Dining Alone, was founded by Clarice G. James in 2011. Our purpose is simple: to fellowship with single adults over a meal at a  communal table.

During the eight years she was widowed, Clarice developed a heart to reach out to singles—especially those who had slipped through the cracks between active couples and busy families.Not a singles club!

Party of One people include men and women of all ages, some single by choice, single by circumstances or “spiritually” single. It also includes some, like Clarice and her husband David, who are called to encourage them.

Founded on Judeo-Christian principles, Party of One extends an open invitation to all who are “tired of dining alone.” To allow as many as possible to attend, we rotate between Friday night, Saturday day, and Sunday afternoon—three of the loneliness times for single adults.

On average, we meet twice a month. We change up venues often between reasonably priced restaurants, fundraising events, and potluck meals.

If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? ~ Matthew 5:46-47 (NIV)
