VISIT A TABLE
Community Tables are an extension of the Family Table in each neighborhood. These are the most informal of the Tables, as neighbors and friends are simply invited together to share a meal or a beverage in the neighborhood. As relationships between the friends and neighbors develop, the Community Table will often extend into other spaces and places where we can serve and learn from people who are in need.
International Food Night - Rocky River - Naomi & Matt Buehrle - email@example.com - 2nd Saturday at 6 pm
Community Table Meal - West Park - Destiny & Steve Hisey - firstname.lastname@example.org - 4th Sunday at 5:30 pm
Prayer to Action in West Park - Laurie & Jim Pantelemon - email@example.com - 1st and 3rd Tuesdays from 6:30 to 7:30 pm (email to confirm details - this is a “fasting” table, I guess you could say - no food and no kids)
By family, we don’t mean “nuclear family.” We mean that we are joining God in extending his family. These Family Tables are for any and all. A simple lesson for children and a formative prayer time are bookended by food and beverage in a distinct neighborhood twice a month. Our first Family Tables are in Rocky River and West Park. This is where family gets extended and all are invited to get a little taste and sight of Jesus – who is good - while enjoying food and beverages together. This is for those who have gathered in church settings often and for those who Jesus misses the most.

This is our Sunday church gathering and it includes Kids Table. Starting on March 3rd, it’s a twice monthly time (1st and 3rd Sunday) for guided interactive teaching, prayers, testimonies, and songs with the Lord’s Table at the center of it all. We meet for fellowship (hanging out) at 10:15 am for coffee followed by a service from 10:30 am to 11:30 am. We have Kids Table from 11:00 am to 11:40 am.
The Lord’s Table reflects an invitation into right relationship with God through Jesus. The Lord’s Table is the place where we are together invited into God’s presence. When we receive the Lord’s embrace at his Table we extend that welcoming table into our neighborhoods through our Family Table and Community Table gatherings. More details and FAQ’s regarding Lord’s Table gathering can be found here.
What do you do on the 2nd and 4th Sundays? See the Family Tables above! That’s as much “church” as our joint Lord’s Table gathering.
What about 5th Sundays? We’re working on “Mission Table” for those Sundays when we “worship” by “serving” a local church ministry.
