Food, great community, and fun: you can’t ask for much more! Join us for our citywide potluck. Bring some food, drink, and any games you might want to share.
A number of Oasians are opening up their homes to host potlucks around the city. Pick one and meet us there! RSVP to individual hosts in the designated comment threads below so that they know how many people to expect and you can let others know what you plan to bring.
Addresses will be sent out to those who RSVP on a comment thread when it gets closer to the date. Please contact Stacy Leonard or James Wartell for questions or if you don’t receive the address.
Our Potlucks hosts are:
1) Joshua Hyde in Pleasant Valley, MO
Our home can comfortably fit up to 20 people, between our living room, dining room, and deck. The backyard is fairly large, and we have toys that kids can use to play with outside. Please *DO NOT* park on the west side of Orchard Street. It is a snow route and, even though the chances of snow are low in the month of October, there are still some neighbors willing to call the police over the parking. Kids are welcome; if the evening calls for it, we’ll set up a fire pit. Feel free to bring marshmallows to roast in that event (and, if you can, provide your own roasting sticks). We have a few couches on which people can crash in case of unplanned need, but we ask that everyone plan on getting home for the evening and doing so responsibly.
2) Julia Lloyd in Midtown KCMO
If the weather is nice and we can use my backyard, I think I can have 40 people pretty easily. We can have a fire and roast marshmallows. I’m fine with the kiddos, but I’m not sure if I would describe my house as child friendly. You can park on the street or park at Jacobs Well. They don’t seem to mind when there’s nothing going on at the church. There’s also another parking lot right at Wyoming and Westport Rd. I would strongly encourage people to bring musical instruments and games to my house and I would emphasize that people can stay fairly late (1:30am) without overstaying their welcome.
3) Leonardo Sá in Raymore, MO
I can fit 20 people comfortably, possibly more. Parking should not be an issue. The backyard is big enough for a multitude of uses, such as voleyball, soccer, and anything else that involves a big open space and grass. Hence, feel free to bring nets, balls, and other apparel (as long as it doesn’t rain). You can stay as late as you want. If two or three people get too hammered to drive home, they are welcome to sleep in the guest room. Feel free to bring anything you want, especially games. Kids are welcome, though I don’t have much that would cater specifically to them.
Unfortunately, all of the homes have stairs and cannot be considered wheelchair accessible. If you have more questions about stairs and accessibility, please contact Stacy Leonard or James Wartell.
Sunday Gatherings are now being held at our new location! Join us at the Kansas City Oasis Community Center located at 1717 W 41st St, Kansas City, MO, 64111.
