About Our Church
The Table's History
The Table started in 2018 as a handful of people gathered around a table to share a meal, worship, hear a message, and have a discussion.
Since then, The Table has sought to create the space for a deepening relationship with God and others as a part of our regular gatherings and everything else we do as a church.
At the heart of The Table is the desire to create the space for people to grow in and explore the way of Jesus. We make room for doubt, questions, and commit to faithfully teaching the Scriptures.
Our vision is to cultivate Christ-centered communities that reflect the diversity of the Kingdom.
"There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus (Gal. 3:28)."
In Christ, the barriers that often divide us in society are brought down by the power of the Gospel. The church is called to be a people who reflect the Great Commission's call to reach the nations (ethnos), which means all peoples.
Therefore, class, race, socio-economic status, gender, education, disabilities,
life-stage, or education should not separate us; rather, we should come with all of differences and unify around the good news of Jesus together.
As we plant churches in the Valley, this will be an essential element.
The Table's Values
Rooted in Christ. We are a Christ-centered church. In the midst of all of our differences, we unify around Jesus and celebrate the diversity of His Kingdom.
Growing in Community. We are created to live in relationship and harmony with one another, not to live life in isolation and pursue self-creation. Against the cultural message of individualism, we seek to grow in community by gathering together to eat, learn, strengthen, and be present with one another.
Serving the Common Good. We are for our community flourishing in peace, justice and wholeness. This means that we should live self-sacrificially for the sake of others by giving our time and resources to meeting the needs of our city: feeding the hungry, standing with the marginalized, and ministering to the broken.
Engaging the Culture. Our current cultural climate is always changing, and The Table seeks to be a place where people can ask questions about and be equipped to navigate such a time with grace and truth.
