Are you new to our church? Maybe you’re looking for community, but you’ve missed the cut-off for our Small Group Semester or Discipleship Class? Maybe you’ve been coming for a while - but your schedule is so hectic that it’s hard to commit to 8 weeks? This is where Open Table comes in.
Open Table is a connection ministry that allows new members to meet other people at New Life. We understand that life can be hectic, that families travel over the summer, and sometimes all the time you can find is one night in the month. Open Table is a one-night ministry that happens every month over the summer. You’ll be paired with 6-8 other people who are looking for community, and a leader will organize a one-time dinner for everyone to attend. This dinner simply gives you an opportunity to meet other people at New Life and enjoy a couple of hours getting to know them.
What happens after your Open Table dinner is completely up to you and your availability. Some tables continue to meet once a month through the summer, some all decide to join a small group together in the fall, and some simply stay connected by interacting on Sunday mornings during service. No matter what kind of schedule you have - we believe that we’re better together, and that experiencing relationship with other believers, even for a short period of time, sharpens and encourages us as Christ followers. We hope you’ll be a part of this ministry and begin building community here at New Life!
