The Table of Connection is our way of taking the collective whole of our church, and challenging individuals to connect with other congregants, or other neighbors, in spaces that are centered upon common interest. Each Table of Connection will be unique to the interests of the heart and mind of the members that pull up a chair. Some examples of this type of table would be golf leagues, sewing groups, softball teams, business leadership masterminds, men’s nights, women’s nights, young adult groups, and more!
At the end of the day, we want our church members to do life together and want those who have common interest to bond over those passions. Why do we call this a table you ask? Well, because we want to encourage commonality around an activity that eventually leads to communion around the table. We encourage those who join teams, leagues, groups, and more to partake in the activity that they enjoy, and follow that with a chance to break bread or enjoy a beverage after. Some of the most fruitful experiences of fellowship for us happens after we join together with groups of people who share a common goal, now we challenge these people to find a table (at a restaurant, park, or even each other’s homes) and share life together after as well!
Want to be a Connect group leader? The requirements are simple…
- Make Space (where passions collide and Christ is witnessed to)
- Make a meal (or go somewhere that does!)
We don’t want to overcomplicate connection, we just want to be a church that longs for our members and families not to do life alone!
Examples of this table:
- Golf group that plays 9 holes and then shares a bible study in the clubhouse after
- Coffee group that tries new coffee shops monthly and shares in a right now media study
- Vocational discipleship group where business professionals meet in local restaurants to discuss how our relationship with Christ guides our business practices.
