Jesus welcomed everyone to the table and so do we. No matter who you are or where you are on life's journey, you are welcome here.
Why Table Church?
"Give us each day our daily bread"
One of the most essential ways we are connected to all creation is through the sustenance we receive from plants, animals, and fungi. Food is a daily human necessity. Good food shows us God's desire for us to take pleasure in life and creation, and at the same time we must respect the creation by which we are sustained. Eating together reminds us to give thanks and commit to our stewardship of creation.
Sharing a common table is a radical act of inclusion. Jesus invites everyone to the table. He set an example of enjoying the company of those who were outcast by society, and challenging the socially and politically powerful to join God’s vision of equality and joyful simplicity. Eating together is a faithful witness to God's love and inclusion of all.
What to Expect at Table Church
Come as you are. Table Church begins at 10am and lasts until roughly noon.
When you arrive, you will be greeted by a member and invited to make a name tag including your preferred gender pronouns.
During the service, we share Holy Communion with locally-sourced bread and non-alcoholic juice.
We sit around the table to greet one another, sing, pray, read scripture, and hear a short message. After the message, adults engage in shared reflection while children (Kindergarten - 5th grade) participate in supervised Children's Church activities nearby. Then we all re-group together for a shared meal.
Most Sundays the meal is a vegan soup accompanied by bread. Members provide the soup and bread. Once per month, we have a potluck feast. Bringing a dish to the potluck is optional.
Cleaning up is a group effort. We finish up by 12:00pm.
