Hi friends -
Of interest to some of you, the Cleveland Indians’ preseason is about to start. Of interest to others of you, the Table preseason (as it relates to Sunday mornings in a public space) is about to start! Naomi and I went and visited Hayes Elementary School on Friday. Our guide around the school was a woman named Sue who was extremely helpful and excited about our presence there for our Sunday gatherings (Lord’s Table) on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month starting in March. We anticipate the service starting at 10:30 am in the cafeteria. We’ll have the space set up with some tables and some benches with a Communion/Eucharist/Lord’s Table set-up at the center. The service will last one hour until 11:30 am. The younger children will be present with us for the first half of the service and then they will go off to Kids Table in the Art Room. Those who are working with the kids will bring them back to the cafeteria a few minutes after 11:30 in order to allow some additional mingling time for the adults and older kids and teens.
Again, Lord’s Table is where all our Tables come together to encounter God, share what God is at work doing at our Tables, and celebrate God making all things new - even us. For FAQ’s on the Lord’s Table, click here.
