Common Table

Common Tables is a small group experience of 5-15 people who gather weekly or bi-weekly to share life and faith together as a means to deepen their communion with God, each other, and the world.


The first Christians devoted themselves to:

  1. The Apostles' Teachings
  2. The Community
  3. Their Sharied Meals
  4. Their Prayers

"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and the prayers." - Acts 2:42


We hope to follow this model as we journey through life together.


Common Tables take place in homes on the day and time that works well for the group. Common Tables is a time and place for: food, discussing the sermon, reading the scriptures, and prayers.


God created us for community!  If you are hungry for a community to plug in to please reach out to Ashley Knowles, Common Tables Coordinator, by clicking below.



Disciple Bible Study

DISCIPLE is a program of disciplined Bible study aimed at developing strong Christian leaders. The study gives the Old and New Testaments equal time, emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God. DISCIPLE draws upon the work of scholars, the personal Bible reading and study of the participant, and dynamic group discussion to aid understanding of the Bible.

 

Disciple Bible Study is enriching, informational, transformational, faith deepening and offers time to develop deep lasting friendships as you study, reflect and pray together as a group.

Disciple contains three elements that have been identified as key to Bible study:

1.  It is conversational.

2.  It puts scripture in context.

3.  It provides opportunities for application.

2021-2022 Theme - Courageous Heart: Full & Free

Our hearts can often feel heavy, weary, grief-stricken, worrisome, afraid, lonely, sorrowful, stuck and/or broken… especially after a year like 2020 and the start of 2021. But God has a plan. Not a trite “everything will be ok and go back to your perfect so-called normal, full of ease and comfort…” But a plan to rescue and restore your weary heart and fill it with hope and freedom SO THAT you can face whatever comes tomorrow with courage.

Short-Term Virtual Studies - Fall 2021

Jesus provided his disciples teachings for how to follow Torah, God’s word; he told them parables to help them discern questions of ethics and of human nature; he offered them beatitudes for comfort and encouragement. But sometimes Jesus spoke words that followers then and now have found difficult. He instructs disciples to hate members of their own families (Luke 14:26), to act as if they were slaves (Matthew 20:27), and to sell their belongings and give to the poor (Luke 18:22). He restricts his mission (Matthew 10:6); he speaks of damnation (Matthew 8:12); he calls Jews the devil’s children (John 8:44).


In The Difficult Words of Jesus, Amy-Jill Levine shows how these difficult teachings would have sounded to the people who first heard them, how have they been understood over time, and how we might interpret them in the context of the Gospel of love and reconciliation.


Led by: Rev. Jared Wilson

A 6-week course beginning on September 12, 2021.
