Our next gathering will be our fall “launch” on Wednesday, Oct. 4th. Stay tuned for details.

Prayer Gathering – Sunday, September 17 at the Walters

Join us at the Walters’ (contact for directions) this Sunday, September 17th for our final prayer gathering of the summer. We’ll start at 4:30pm w/ a shared meal. Then have a time of prayer, song, and share in the Lord’s Supper. We will also be talking about our fall “launch” and what is needed. Join us this Sunday if you are able!

Hands

Think about all the things you do with your hands. You can do awful things with them, as well as great things. You can write a bunch of crap on social media; you could throw an egg. You can carry unnecessary burdens; you could hurt. You can use your hands to knock someone down and promote yourself. You could do a lot of bad, if you wanted. You can also use your hands to serve. With your hands you could write an encouraging note; you could make a meal and deliver it to someone who’s tired. You can hug with your hands, and take out someone’s trash. You could even let things go, unnecessary baggage you’ve been carrying. You can do a lot of good with your hands.

 

As people, we have choices to make everyday of what we will do. As followers of Jesus, we have opportunities everyday, opportunities to show the love of Christ to a hurting world. So the question to ponder is, what will you/we do with what we’ve been given? What will you/we do with the time we have, the resources given to us? What will you do with your hands this week?

 

No Gathering this Weekend (Sept. 9/10)

We are going to switch up our September worship date. We were scheduled to have it this Sunday evening, but I think it would be best to delay a week and gather for prayer/worship at our house on Sunday Sept. 17, starting w/ a meal at 4:30p. This will be our last summer gathering, and we will pray over the fall start. My hope is to have some promotional material available that you can pass on to your neighbors/friends about our new wednesday gathering (which will start Oct. 4).
So, no gathering this weekend. Plan on a prayer gathering Sept 17th.
Until then, please be in prayer for the Wednesday evening gathering and its planning and logistics. Specifically:
-Pray that we can confirm a location for the gathering
-Pray for our kids, that they will transition well into the Godly Play curriculum
-Pray for my planning for the adult sessions. I’m excited about what we will be covering this fall
-And, pray about who you might invite into our new Wednsday rhythm
You all are awesome. I am truly blessing to be on this adventure w/ y’all

Table Prayer Letter – Sept. 2017

Looking Back. In June of 2010, The Table held its first worship gathering. Now 7 years later we are celebrating all that God has done among us. In that time God has shown His Hospitality, bringing folks into His family who were isolated and lost. God has built us up in His Discipleship as we have grown in our knowledge and worship of Him. And in that time, God has shown His Blessing, revealing His love to neighbors in tangible ways while sending others out to pursue their callings in Him. We have much to celebrate.

Looking Ahead. We are excited to see how God will continue to move among us. From its start, The Table has held a missional orientation, and along the way we have discovered that we are strong in making disciples. With these things in mind, The Table has discerned that the best way to reach our neighbors in the coming season, while building up church members, will be to move our Sunday worship gatherings to Wednesday. On October 4th we will begin our new weekly Wednesday gathering (from 6p-7p, with an optional shared meal at 5:15p – location TBA soon). Adults will enjoy various session topics on the major tenets of Discipleship (Jesus/Bible study, fellowship/relationship with others, worship/sacrament, prayer, and serving the world in His name), while kids will grow in the knowledge and wonder of God through the Young Children and Worship curriculum. We believe that meeting mid-week, coupled with engaging session topics, will allow neighbors to interact easily with Christian concepts, while empowering believers in their pursuit of Christ. We invite you to pray with us as we make this exciting change. May God be glorified, and may His Kingdom expand among us all! Thanks for your support of all that He is doing in Bellingham!

 

Please join us in prayer:

  1. For God’s favor as we plan, organize, and begin our new Wednesday gathering
  2. For God’s wisdom and creativity as we bring good news to our neighborhoods
  3. For growth. Growth in our depth in Christ, and growth in the width/reach of the church
  4. That the kingdom of God would grow in Bellingham

 

Thank you for partnering with The Table in expanding God’s Kingdom in Bellingham
