Common Table

Where Good Food Meets God's Grace

Meets for dinner once monthly, plus social and service activities

A safe, respectful, and inclusive space to explore your faith

Common Table is an open community of believers and seekers, invited to gather around a common table, share a meal, and engage in deep and meaningful conversation about things that matter, especially spiritual things. Out of these experiences, an intentional community is born, providing space for healing, exploring our faith journeys, and strengthening our relationships with each other and with God, as we determine how best we can live our lives as followers of Jesus.

Common Table dinner events, along with social and service activities, are held once each month. They're always free! Be sure to grab your seat at our next dinner!
