Connections:

Brunch Church &

Sabbath Celebration

Jesus used the dinner table to welcome strangers, befriend the outcast and lonely, and talk about the Kingdom of God. Two thousand years later, strangers and friends are still welcome at Christ's table. Come to the table. Come hungry - for food, for friendship, for a place to experience and share God's love. Come, and be filled.

Experience Worship Anew

Scripture tells us that the first Christians  "broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts" (Acts 2:46).

 

Join us as we re-discover a style of worship that dates back all the way to Jesus and the early church. 

 

Together we will explore the ways the Holy Spirit can and will work in our midst as we break bread and eat together with glad and sincere hearts.

Life is Lived Out Around the Table

Together we can connect with our neighbors, dispel loneliness, learn from one another, and create a place where all are welcome.

Through shared stories and rich discussions, laughter and inspiration, we can and will experience the fullness of God.

“I believe that the community - in the fullest sense: a place and all its creatures - is the smallest unit of health and that to speak of the health of an isolated individual is a contradiction in terms."
- Wendell Berry
