 THE LIVING TABLE

 God created us to live in community. Gathering together around a table to enjoy good food is a powerful way to bring people together in today’s busy world.

 We will explore the importance of the table and the art of hospitality as we connect with God and others. The Living Table is a different way in which Christ teaches us to serve others. We will participate in devotions and fellowship, prepare a recipe together, and then enjoy it afterward.
