New Sermon Series: The Table

Series-Table-331x221Starting April 12 Pastor Rudnick will begin a new sermon series: The Table. It’s the place we gather to nourish our bodies. It’s also the place we gather to nourish our souls. The table is the place where community happens. Healthy families gather around the table. Friends gather around the table. They gather to laugh, tells stories, reflect on life and generally connect with each other. The table has always played an important role in building community.

In this 5-week series, we will look at the centrality of the table in the Biblical narrative. We will examine the need for Christ-centered table gatherings and the role they play in building community within the church and connecting with those outside the church.

Week 1 Christ at the Table
Week 2 Invited to the Table
Week 3 The Messy Table
Week 4 Table Manners
Week 5 A Reserved Table
