Have you ever wanted to ask questions about what you hear in church? Have you ever wanted to see what church can be like through new eyes? Come join us for an hour. Bring a friend, make friends, and hear powerful stories, both ancient and new, and see what you can bring to the table that helps us all grow together in our spiritual journey.

The first thing that attracted people to the Jesus movement was the fact that he welcomed anyone to eat with him.

This might not seem strange to us, but in the ancient world, it was considered wrong to eat with anyone who wasn’t in your inner circle. Jesus challenged the class structure of Rome by eating with all. He challenged the understandable tendency of the Judean people to be selective in their company based on Torah and on personal safety. It was the way Jesus and his followers sought to include everyone at the table, that made this small Jewish sect gather so much traction among non-Jewish people as well as Jesus’ own community, the Jews.

This is what we’re trying to recreate: a chance to gather together and share our stories and a simple symbolic meal. In this we get to know one another and explore what our relationship to God, who cannot be defined, continues to be.
